Community Partners

Conquering CHD, is a national non-profit organization made up entirely of parents of children with CHD (congenital Heart disease) and adults with CHD, and advised by a nationally recognized medical team. Congenital Heart Disease affects every 1 in 100 births and is the most common birth defect.

On a personal level, our son was diagnosed with heart disease at 2 days old and had surgery 2 days later. To go from thinking you have a healthy newborn to post-op care was terrifying. Heart disease stays with your child for the rest of their life and there is always a possibility that further corrections will need to be made as they grow.

Having a community that understands what being a heart family means is so important so In conjunction with National Heart month ( February) we are launching the Louisiana state chapter of Conquering CHD. We have a strong board of Louisiana heart parents that have been working tirelessly since June 2020 through the pandemic to bring this organization and its amazing resources to Louisiana.

Our mission is to conquer the most common birth defect!

We do this by ~ 

Raising awareness

  • it is the most common birth defect affecting 1 out of 100 newborns 
  • fewer than 10% of adults with CHD are receiving the recommended care 

Educating and informing

  • we’re changing the conversation around transparency and public reporting of hospital outcomes
  • we host CHD WIse education series 
  • we provide care packages, and “Guided Questions Tool” for those starting the long and stressful journey in the hospital or office setting  

Advocating at the legislative level 

  • in Dec 2018 Conquering CHD advocates successfully fought for the passage of the Congenital Heart Futures Reauthorization Act providing $50M for CHD research and data collection for the CDC & NIH

Providing support 

  • parent group meetings 
  • closed Facebook Adult/Teen Patient discussion groups
  • social, educational and fundraising events at the local, state level and national levels

On January 27, 2021, Louisiana will officially become the 16th chapter and we would love help on spreading the word that we are now an available LOCAL resource and make sure new families in the CHD community know that there is a place they can go for support.

Commercial

Omar Lugo founded Habaneros in 2014 with the support of his wife Dulce and the help of chef Oscar Rodriguez on the kitchen. Habaneros brings the traditional foods and distinctive flavors of Mexican Cuisine by delivering a well-traveled menu of dishes that emulate the street foods and laid back eateries of native Mexico.

The idea behind the menu evolution is to continue to showcase the diversity of Mexican ingredients by elevating classic cuisine in a contemporary, yet authentic way. At the heart of the menu is the dedication to serving fresh, authentic ingredients with everything made from scratch from salsas and sauces to marinades spices and rubs to the handcrafted cocktails. Mr. Lugo’s Mission is to continue to expand to bring his concept and passion to other cities.

Habanero’s has been a Fidelity Bank client for over 3 years. Our Commercial and Small Business teams have both taken pride in watching his business grow from a single location to three restaurants serving clients in St. Tammany Parish. 

Omar was originally a Small Business client. As he developed his plans to build his newest restaurant in west Madisonville, he was referred to Brian Cook in Commercial to work with him on his construction loan.

Habanero’s newest location on Highway 22 in Madisonville was completed in September 2020 and opened in late 2020.

P.O.W.E.R.

Q: What local resources have you used?

We use local roofing suppliers such as Travis Roofing Supply and Mid South Specialty Products, to name a couple. We also use local banking, including Fidelity.

Q: What has been the biggest benefit of being a POWER Member? 

I’m new to the Fidelity POWER, this year has been challenging to all industries. Looking into 2021, I’m excited for what POWER has to offer to women in various industries including business, culture and community.

Q: What does POWER mean to you?

POWER means to me that ever woman has the ability to lead, direct, and influence others with their gifts, talents and resources. Being a powerful woman means being able to effectively make changes while managing people and issues. People don’t have to see you in the forefront but they will feel your presence when you walk into a room.
