One of my true inspirations and hero every day is my youngest daughter Sara.  Congential Heart Disease survivor with Transposition of the Great Arteries, Artial Septal Defect, Ventricular Septal Defect, Single Coronary Artery, Glenn and Fountaine operations before AGE 2!!!  My daughters single ventrical and the life she lives is nothing short of miraculous.  One in every 110 babies are born with some form of CHD, this is real, we need to do something, and it commands our best effort, NOW!

I ask you to join us in the fight for a cure as we try to raise money for Ronald Mcdonald House Charities.  A portion of every ISET Academy student’s tuition will go to this charity.  Give us your business, get the best training possible, and together we make a difference, a real one, because we fight every day for the next one.
