This is Finn! Finn will turn 3 on January 2nd. He was born with heart disease and spent the first 8 months of his life in the hospital enduring 10 surgeries including one open heart surgery. Finn just had his second open heart surgery this past September and is now home getting ready for the holidays with family!


Jeremy is 4 years old with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. He had his first open heart surgery at 4 days old, his second at 4.5 months old, and his third, at almost 3 years old. He is doing exceptionally well and loves to go to gymnastics, swimming, and loves art.


Rosemary is a 10-year-old Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome(HLHS). In essence, Rosie was born with half a heart. She has had 4 open heart surgeries, 12 heart catheterizations and is now facing another open-heart surgery in the coming weeks. Even facing this Rosie lives a life filled with trials, triumphs but full and with laughter and love…because CHD research and education works!
