Blogging for Bentley

You may have heard of Bentley here in the blog world, but if not I am asking you to please go to her blog and read. Don't just read the highlights, read her story. The whole story. Bentley's mommy is trying to raise awareness for her condition by doing a blog giveaway.

I am a blog giveaway sucker for sure, but this one is special to me. Bentley is a beautiful baby and deserves a chance to have a normal, happy and healthy life. So go read her story and then blog about her!

Here are just a few CHD facts.. there are many more...
Congenital heart defects are the #1 birth defect. Nearly one of every 100 babies is born with a CHD.
Congenital heart defects are the #1 cause of birth defect related deaths.
Congenital heart defects are the leading cause of all infant deaths in the United States.
Each year approximately 40,000 babies are born in the United States with a congenital heart defect. thousands of them will not reach their first birthday and thousands more die before they reach adulthood.
