A Successful 2012 for the ACHA Blog

ACHA Communications Manager

As 2012 comes to an end, and the inevitable year-end numbers are crunched, we here at ACHA would like to say thank you to all of our bloggers—this year, more than 15 bloggers wrote more than 135 posts! Our bloggers are volunteers, and we could not be more appreciative of them being so giving of their time, but especially of them sharing about living their lives with CHD in such an open way.

This year, bloggers had heart transplants and open heart surgeries, got married, advocated in D.C. with us, got new jobs, made big moves, started new diets and healthy eating habits, and so much more. They shared these stories in their posts and allowed us to be with them every step of the way.

Also, we’d like to note how much we appreciate those of you who comment on the ACHA Blog posts, on each individual post and on Facebook. It is great to have an engaged audience to keep the conversation going about important issues in the CHD community!

We’d also like to remind readers that another number we’re counting at the end of the year is money raised towards our year-end giving goals. Don’t forget that you have a few more days before 2012 is over to make a tax-deductible donation to ACHA. You could even consider donating to the Steve Catoe Memorial Fund, with donations supporting, among other areas, online support services including our discussion forum and this very blog. Thank you in advance, and Happy New Year from ACHA!
