Ian was born with multiple congenital heart defects. His first openheart surgery was performed at 4 days old and 3 additional before he was 3. He has also had several other surgeries related to his condition. His heart function has recently declined. He has begun the process for being placed on the heart transplant list. This process will require several trips to the hospital. We found out that he is only compatible with a small percentage of the population which means he could be waiting a substantial amount of time for a transplant. Ian is also autistic and needs his family by his side. We appreciate any and all donations as they ensure he has everything he needs during this stressful time.

Another hospital stay. That’s twice in less than 2 months. He is officially on the transplant list. It will be a long wait due to his limited compatibility status. The goal is to keep him as strong and healthy as possible in the mean time.
Ian’s compatibility tests were not good. He’s only compatible with a small percentage of the population. As a result, it could be a long time before he’s offered a new heart. Please continue to pray for our family as this is going to be a very long journey for us.
We appreciate the love and support for Ian and our family. Ian will complete his transplant evaluation at U of M in less than 2 weeks. Please keep the prayers and thoughts coming as we continue to push through these stressful times.
Ian is coming home from the hospital for the holidays. They have decided that another open-heart surgery is not feasible for him. He has now begun the multi-step process of being placed on the heart transplant list. We appreciate everyone’s continued support.
