|"To appreciate today's available treatment and it's degree of success, one should consider it's short history - recognizing that in the recent past nearly every baby born with this defect perished within days and countless others suffered from their loss. The courage possessed by the family and the medical community and their rising to meet the challange can be measured by the ever improving outcomes we witness today"|
|This website is in honor of his fight and to document his future - a heart, possibly heart & lung transplant.
His fight is unyeilding and his successes, unbelievable. As his parents, we look back in awe at what he has survived, he is awesome, our hero.
