Communications Manager

On behalf of ACHA, and especially all of our ACHA future bloggers, I want to welcome you to our new ACHA Blog! Thank you for visiting, and I’m looking forward to you becoming regular readers to see all that we have to offer; we have quite a few bloggers on board who will post about many topics relevant to the CHD community.

Our first post comes from Christy Sillman, a pediatric ICU nurse who was born with Tetralogy of Fallot. Her blog post will be online later this week, so please check back to read it! If you want to stay in the loop with our updates, our RSS feed is available by clicking the orange icon next to the posted time at the top of each post.

And if you don’t already “like” us on Facebook, please do so today so you can also get blog updates there. Click here for the ACHA Facebook page.

Finally, don’t forget to comment on the posts and let us know what you think so that we can make this blog as interactive as possible.

Thanks for reading!

I also will be looking forward to reading more posts. Today I read the story of a man with TGA that is 20 years older than my daughter(who also has TGA) and it somehow put a good feeling in my heart. Thank you for sharing!
