It was a typical Wednesday morning commute to Lindenwood University, when I heard a promo featuring St. Louis Singer/Songwriter Erin Bode and a 10-year-old girl. Cornbread in the morning always provides pure entertainment, but on this particular drive a great song for a great cause caught my attention. Remembering the details, I researched what exactly “Hearts in Harmony” was all about.
Just four months after birth, Katelyn Jackson went in for her first round of surgery to fix a heart defect called, complete AV canal. In other words, Katelyn was born with a large hole in her heart. For more information on this rare heart disease, visit the American Heart Association’s website.
