Hi my name is Vinnie I am writing this on behalf of my great nephew, Weston Peter Wertman. My neice gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on December 11th, 2014, however, he was born with one less heart chamber, although she was able to carry Weston to full term, Doctors' knew his heart would be compromised. Upon his visit with the cardiologist it was learned he had a condition called "Tetralogy of Fallot" ( congenital heart disease). The Doctor told my neice and her husband, Weston needs open heart surgery to correct this...  This broke my heart!! Baby Weston will be having surgery on March 18th, 2015 and we need all the help financially possible to make this happen, so he has a fighting chance. As you can all imagine this surgery will be costly for them, she is a school teacher and her husband works for a flooring company and the Insurance they hold will not cover the entire cost of this delicate surgery for baby Weston. There will be a team of Doctors' working on Baby Weston, the anesthesiologist, surgery itself, 7 or 8 days hospital stay, recovery, medicine, after care and also room and board for my neice and her husband so they can stay with baby Weston for the duration of his stay. Donations can also be made to Comerica Bank, 228 Mt. Hermon Rd., Scotts Valley, CA 95066. Account # 9416355676 ( Weston Peter Wertman ). Please open up your hearts and help us save baby Weston. God Bless.

We want to thank everyone for such unending support both prayerfully and financially. Weston is healing so well, gaining weight, and overall a very happy baby again. His heart looks great from all our cardiology appointments. He may need another surgery later in life but our prayer is that he will never need one again. I am back to work but he is well taken care of by our family.We are so grateful for this experience, although difficult, we know God's healing hand was and is upon him and we know how much we are loved. Thank you again. Love the Wertman's

The surgery for Weston is scheduled for March 18th. Again thank you so much for all your prayers and donated support. The surgeons will be performing open heart surgery and although we are very nervous we are also hopeful trusting that the Lord will bring him through this surgery healed. I found out through insurance and cost of surgery that our goal would be around this changed amount. We appreciate all that we have received so far for anything will help us tremendously.

We are overwhelmed by all the support and prayers our baby is receiving. We really appreciate the outpouring of love for our family and the generosity shown to us. I am so thankful for my Aunt Vinnie and her husband Steve for starting this fund for us to be able to pay Weston's medical expenses. He is such a wonderful little blessing and I know he will be well taken care of at LPCH.
