Shameless Appeal

My husband and I will be heading to Oakland, CA on June 8th to support the Congenital Heart Walk to be held on June 9th. As some of you know, I was born with a hole in my heart (atrial septal defect) requiring open heart surgery and other interventions. So while I’ve participated in many fundraising walks before,  this is the first time I’ve done one where I am one of the ones the walk is being held for. My story and donation page can be found at this link, if you are so inclined.  If you would like to spread the word, I would doubly appreciate it.


  1. Hi, Carissa. This is wonderful that you’ll be participating in the walk. Do you know if it’s possible to make contributions via Paypal through the link? When I went to the website and see the donation box, it isn’t clear what the options are.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
