A Heart to Build

It is with the heaviest of hearts I must tell you that Noah earned his wings on the afternoon of March 24th. He fought hard and was loved fiercely, but God needed him and we had no choice but to let him go. With tears in our eyes and great sadness in our hearts, we still thank Him for allowing us these five months with Noah. He has changed our lives forever and for that we are eternally grateful. We will love you always sweet boy...

This page will stay live as there are still medical bills coming in and now other expenses to be taken care of now. Adam and Ashley still need our support.




Original Post:
He needs you. My nephew has HLHS (Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome) meaning the left ventricle of his heart is, essentially, missing. It's not something that will correct itself or something he'll grow out of. If untreated he won't survive.

We're sad, stressed, shocked, scared, but most of all...hopeful. This WILL be okay. It will all turn out the way it's supposed to, we just have to stay positive and have faith.

You can look up the condition and read about the three-stage surgery that's required and the statistics involved, there is a lot of information readily available. He has a chance. He has a GOOD chance and we are staying positive. There are a number of survivors...the oldest are in their twenties and thirties because the procedure wasn't started until 1985 so we don't know exactly what the future may bring...but who does?

This journey will be long and hard, but we are bracing ourselves for it, which is where you come in...if you choose to. I'm hoping to be able to raise enough money to help them with medical expenses.

So I ask for your help. As much or as little as you can give. Every penny counts.

Thank you for taking the time to read my message and considering a donation. Please pray for my brother and his wife, but most of all my nephew...and help them get through what promises to be a challenging time.
