    I would like to make another special organization known to you. Intermountain Healing Hearts was started by my daughter and a few other “heart” moms who had babies that were born with congenital heart defects. Her name is Christina Moore Davis and she has lived in American Fork for over 10 years. Her 3rd child, a son, was born with a life threatening heart defect that required him to be air lifted to Primary children’s and have surgery before he was a week old. He survived…some babies don’t. Christina and a few of the other moms she met while attending to her son at the hospital noticed there was no support to help the parents who had to leave home for weeks to be with their babies and they decided, with the support of the hospital, to organize some help for those parents. Christina was the first president of the board of the newly formed organization. They sponsor a “run” each year to raise money and awareness for CHD (congenital heart defects) . They minister to the families of the children and each year remember the little angels who have passed on.
