Hockey for Heart Hero Easton

KOHA Fees & Pricing 
(for reference, his birthday is 5/23/2012 so this is who he would play with) 


Easton is an eight year old boy who adores hockey. He played his first year during the 2018-2019 year and loves to practice in the house, in his hockey-themed bedroom, and even plays hockey on his video game console!

Easton wasn’t able to play for his second year due to the discovery in September 2019 of an extremely rare heart defect, called Anomalous Origin of the Left Coronary Artery. Two months to the day later, on 11/18/19, my child underwent open heart surgery at University of Michigan’s children’s hospital. He was a fighter, staying strong and showing us a real superhero. One of the things that kept him strong was the knowledge that he’d be safe to play his favorite sport again - hockey. If his defect had not been found, my sweet boy could have dropped dead any time his heart rate went up. 

Now, hockey is expensive. I do my best to find secondhand gear and anything I can do to help, but I am disabled. I’m unemployed and trying hard to get approved for disability for the last three years. We live on less than $450 a month currently; there’s not much room for hockey. We were lucky enough to have help from Easton’s dad and paternal grandpa last year; this year, his dad has a new baby to care for and his paternal grandpa had heart surgery himself.

I know 2020 is a year where a lot of disappointments happen and whatnot, but... if you can spare even a couple dollars to help me make my son so, so happy... that would be amazing. He deserve this so much, after missing last season to undergo life-changing surgery, he’s been looking forward to this hockey season for a long time. Please consider helping me make his dream come true.
