Feburary Is Heart Awareness Month!

"Approximately 40,000 babies are born each year in the United States with a 
CHD. That equates to 1 out of 125 babies born with a heart defect."  ~ Little Hearts, Inc


February is widely recognized as National Heart Month, and within that month Congenital Heart Defect Awareness is celebrated from the 7th-14th. Congenital heart defects is the #1 birth defect. My family was personally affected by the congenital heart defect because my four year old son was born with Tetraolgy of Fallot. He was 1 of 125 babies to be born with a congenital heart defect and has underwent two open heart surgeries since birth. Click here to read more about my son's condition.

This month Couture Lace Crowns will be donating 10% of February sales to Little Hearts, Inc which is a community that provides support, education, and resources to families affected by congenital heart defects.

Please give your support by purchasing a Couture Lace System or donating as little as $5 to help spread the awareness of Congenital Heart Defects.  Visit www.couturelacecrowns.com and donate today!
