My Story

Our son Jake was born with down syndrome and a congenital heart defect. After 3 heart surgeries before the age of 2, Jake was very sick, on ECMO life support, and listed for a heart transplant. We received our miracle of a life saving heart transplant for Jake in June, 2001. At 20+ years post-transplant, he is enjoying an amazing healthy and wonderful life! We are so thankful for his heart transplant and the generosity of his donor family. Our family has been very blessed by their generous gift.
