"It's not easy for a 6-year-old boy or any child of any age to have that type of surgery . " HELP US By PRAYING AND SHOWING LOVE " PRAYERS PRAYERS I Decided To Open This GOFUNDME PAGE For The Community to Support Hi I am Martin Watts my son Joey was diagnosed with supravalvular aortic stenosis (SVAS) .I requested a 3.5-inch scar to be inked on My chest so It can match my sons. Saving -life surgery . When Joey saw the scar, he just said, ‘Is this where they have cut me to fix my heart'? We've told him it should be something to be proud. Joey underwent an eight-hour procedure on May 23 at Leeds Children's Hospital and was discharged on May 28. My older son Harley also has the condition and will undergo the same surgery later this year . Harley, is 7 and , was diagnosed while still in utero "From when they were first born, they told me there was nothing they could do, we would just have to live with it," SVAS is a heart condition that develops before birth and causes "the narrowing of the large blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body," according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. If the condition is left untreated, it can lead to shortness of breath, chest pain and ultimately heart failure. Some patients may die in infancy, while others may never experience symptoms of the disorder. SVAS is estimated to occur in 1 in 20,000 newborns worldwide.
