Let's celebrate congenital heart disease awareness month and a 1 in 100 Nurse!





    February marks the beginning of congenital heart disease (CHD) awareness month. 

    Christy Sillman, RN, MSN lives with CHD 24/7. 

    She works 5 days a week as an Adult CHD nurse coordinator at Stanford and supports her CHD peers (zipper sisters) online.

    February is about being vocal, gaining awareness, and getting people to care about the number one birth defect.

    Christy Sillman is 1 in 100 born with congenital heart disease. 

                                Christy Sillman is a nurse!


Christy is included in this touching video of zipper sisters.
