Let's Help Kevin's Heart Fight A Good Fight!
Any connections anyone may have to create experiences for Kevin that are meaningful and joyful for the purpose of creating an environment for his heart to thrive would be a true blessing.
Please feel free to share Kevin's story with your church, prayers are very much welcomed and appreciated. Kevin was born with a rare congenital heart condition and prognosis is unknown. Presently he is having almost monthly recurring complications such as pericarditis, pericardial effussion, pleural effusion, cardiac tamponaude, pericardial thickening, supraventicular tachycardia and atelectasis and there is no cure.
It all began on May 21, 2012 , Kevin suffered a heart attack at school during PE as result of an overlooked rare congenital heart condition, AAOCA: Anomalous Aortic Origin of a Coronary Artery. In other words, his right coronary artery was raveled, wrapped around his heart and on the left side of his heart.
On July 3, 2012 Kevin had corrective open heart surgery because his coronary artery was restricting oxygen thus his heart attack. His right coronary artery had to be dissected from the left side of his heart and re implanted to the right side of his heart. Kevin's condition is typically found in post mortem ,the very first surgery for his condition was performed in the United States about 8 years ago. His surgery was the very first surgery ever performed by his cardiac surgeons and at the hospital it was performed. His heart surgery was video taped, and shared in a conference with cardiologists from all over the world, and publishing's in medical journals.

Anyone interested can go to any Chase Bank simply tell them you would like to make a donation to the account of Anne S. Giroux in University Place, Washington, and that is all, the bank is already set up. This post may be shared.
Kevin deserves to be appreciated and he is dedicated to any mission. He is certified by the NAVY ROTC with leadership skills.
Please give anything you can! A special thank you to those who have donated! There continues to be a need for hiring a legal defense team, but there is an additional need to ease some of the financial burdens that are directly related to the false allegations and litigation's. Kevin's heart complications are continually recurring and is life threatening if he does not have access to medical care. We are struggling to obtain transportation so I can take Kevin to the cardiologists, hospital, or school. We have used the Paratransit system for medical purposes, and at times it has been very painful for Kevin especially when he is having complications and one time we were hit by another vehicle while we were simply the passengers in the paratransit in September 2012. Owning our own vehicle would be more practical for a medically fragile child, your contributions can help! Peace, love, and light! And most of all, thank you for your caring generosity.
"The fight for justice against corruption is never easy. It never has been and never will be. It exacts a toll on our self, our families, our friends, and especially our children. In the end, I believe, as in my case, the price we pay is well worth holding on to our dignity."
Your continued prayers are welcomed and very much appreciated.
