Featured Fundraiser - Celebrating George, Supporting Research 

The Wudel Family is working to raise $50,000 in honor of the first birthday of their daughter, George:

"So much feels like a blur since our pregnancy when we heard, Your daughter has 'Turner Syndrome and some heart defects.' Going through surgeries, hospital stays, heart caths, and countless appointments at Duke, has not been without agony. But it has been the people at Duke Children’s, especially Duke Pediatric and Congenital Heart Center—the cardiologists, nurses, surgeons, therapists, sonographers, support staff, and fellow parents—that have offered and continue to offer honesty, hope, and healing so George, and we, may thrive. There is deep comfort in knowing George is in the hands of the best.

Out of our deepest gratitude and admiration for all that this program and team means to our family, and thousands more families like ours, we, with your help, hope to play a small part in raising money for scientific research around congenital heart disease. We’re wanting to raise $50,000 that interfaces directly with CHD patients and families at Duke Children’s. We want to lessen those blurry, overwhelming moments for families with more direct funding and scientific research programs that continue to enhance cohesive, quality care."
