All hearts for Adam❤️
Hi, this is Jake and Matt Moore. We are setting up this GoFundMe account to help with the expenses of heart surgery for our little brother, Adam Moore.
As most of you know Adam has a smile and heart bigger than any 10 year old you will ever meet!
Adam will be undergoing his 2nd open heart surgery on February 1, 2018, at Children’s Hospital of Atlanta. He was born with a genetic disorder called Williams Syndrome. Williams Syndrome has many wonderful characteristics. Adam loves his family, music, people, animals and ice cream! (In that order most days).
Unfortunately with WS comes several heart issues. At birth, Adam was diagnosed with Congenital Stenosis of the pulmonary artery, Aortic Stenosis- supravalvular, Renovascular hypertension, Hypoplasia of the aortic arch and Pulmonary artery stenosis. He had his first open heart surgery at 3 months old to repair his aortic valve. At that time we were told he would probably have several future heart surgeries. The next few years of his life, he was back and forth to Egleston for several heart caths, heart MRIs, and check-ups. But the past few years he has been in amazing health and has grown up to be such a big kid.
We noticed in October that Adam was starting to have some issues. After a trip to his pediatrician’s office, our favorite cardiologist and a trip to Egleston it was decided that it was time for his second surgery.
This surgery will be to enlarge his aortic arch, which has extensive narrowing. The narrowing causes his heart to work overtime and restricts the blood flow. We are hoping this surgery will give his big heart a little break from working so hard.
This GoFundMe account was set up to help with the cost of medical expenses and hotel expenses for our family during his time in the hospital. Adam will be in Cardiac Intensive Care Unit for 5 days and in the hospital for 7-10 days.
The cost will be extremely high. We are estimating our out of pocket expenses will be around $15,000.
Insurance will cover a moderate amount, but there will be additional medical cost. (Co-pays, deductible, prescriptions, travel/hotel expense)
Thank you for your prayers, support and for considering giving to our Go FundMe account. Please also consider sharing our link on your Facebook page.
Our motto will be...
All hearts and prayers for Adam!
❤️Jake and Matt
