Rachel Kain

Rachel is an IT business analyst, wife to Michael, and mother to two living, heart-healthy boys. She is also the mother of Colin, who passed away in 2010 at 3 months old from complications after open heart surgery to correct multiple congenital heart defects, including Transposition of the Great Arteries. Rachel joined the Michigan chapter of CHF in order to help raise money for research and ensure that ALL children born with CHDs live long and healthy lives, and that ALL children whose CHDs require surgery will make it home from the hospital. Cementing Colin’s legacy is the inspiration for her commitment to the CHD community in general and The Children’s Heart Foundation in particular.
