Together We Can Beat Anything T shirt

We are excited to team up with The Balmert's on a new shirt to raise money for research. All proceeds from "Together We Can Beat Anything" t-shirts will be donated to Cleveland Clinic Children's pediatric research center.  Printed on a super soft heather black 60/40 style t shirt for great feel and fit. Available in XS- 3XL. Read more about their story below.


Chris Balmert and his wife Lindsay were excited to expect their second child. It was at their anatomy scan when they learned she would be born with a congenital heart defect (CHD). It was determined the baby girl had transposition of the great arteries (D-TGA).
With D-TGA the two main arteries, the pulmonary and aorta, are connected to the wrong chambers of the heart. This means the blood being pumped through the heart is not properly oxygenized and deoxygenized. The baby would need to have an open heart surgery procedure called an arterial switch only a few days after birth.

Ryann Marie was born on March 6th, and it was determined through an echocardiogram that she has a different form of TGA known as L-TGA or corrected transposition of the great arteries. This is where the right and left lower chambers of the heart are reversed. She also has an atrial septal defect (ASD) which is a hole in the wall that separates the top two chambers of the heart. 

Ryann will need very close monitoring for the rest of her life. If the ASD does not correct itself on its own, she will need to have open heart surgery to close the hole. Unfortunately, there are a lot of unknowns with this defect. 

Because of this experience, the Balmert's are determined to spread awareness about CHD. Medical research is key to provide the best care for CHD babies. 

They will be forever grateful to the pediatric cardiology team at Cleveland Clinic Children's. Thank you in advance for your support!
 
Just a note that these are preorders for a few days so they won't be shipped out immediately.
