The page was started (and the picture above) is in honor of my daughter Kaylin Danielle. I love you Toots! I have been writing letters for the last few weeks to Gov. Cuomo in NY to proclaim Feb. 7-14th CHD week. My step Mom started the petition to help us get this done!

Is this petition JUST for the state of NY, I think i would be AWESOME if it went all across the country... every state adopt Feb 7-14 as CHD awareness week!! How CAN we help make that happen?

Angela Groninger you can petition your state by going to your proclamation department. This one is specifically for NY. I googled NY state proclamation department and then it gave me an email address as well as a physical address. I have been emailing and sending letters since nov. 30th. There is a website on fb... let me get the link>>>> https://www.facebook.com/?ref=tn_tnmn#!/CHDAware?fref=ts these people may be able to help you... its the official page for the chd awareness week across the nation! :)

I actually just sent in the proclamation tonight!! I think I am too late though, it had to be sent in 6-8 weeks before the signed proclamation was needed! and it's 4 weeks from today for feb 7-14 awareness week... but i will keep my fingers crossed anyway!!

you never know!!! great job, and even if youre too late for this year, you can always try for next year... you can also try it on a more local level and contact your city's mayor about the proclamation! :) Im doing that today as well ;)

Angela, she added her picture to the petition up above. If you look under Kaylins picture you will see thumbnails of other children who are currently fighting CHD's or who are CHD Angels. Donna is my step mom and she added Isabella's picture, if you dont want her to you can just tell her not to, and she will take her off :)
