For Landon's Heart

Rebekah Wilson   CHAMPAIGN, IL

Landon was diagnosed in utero with two debilitating heart defects. He wasn't favored to survive until birth and survival past 1 year old was even slimmer. 2 heart catheter procedures and an open heart surgery (all before a year old) had gotten Landon to 4.5 years old (today). The next surgery was anticipated when Landon turned 15, however, his heart is failing faster and he is needing surgery in the next few weeks. This past year was draining on his parents leave from work; his dad had extensive knee surgery taking him out of work for 6 weeks and extra attention was taken for his younger brother, Logan, who also had several Dr visits for a kidney defect. Their vacation/sick time is drained. Their savings isn't where they wanted it to be to accommodate medical bills. Surgery and time off work (even after insurance) will run at least $15,000. Landon's heart journey will not end here. He will have more surgeries ahead. Please help make this journey a little easier. As an added bonus, Landon's mom will be sewing custom hospital gowns.  For each $250 level reach, she will be mailing them out to other children who are in their heart battle.
