JR's Ninja Team

It's hard to imagine that 8 years ago this this little man was undergoing open heart surgery.  JR was born with Tetralogy of Fallout, TOF for short.  He had a large hole in his heart that mixed oxygenated and unoxygenated blood, causing his heart to work overtime and build up muscle tissue.  At 4 months of age, he spent 4 days at LIJ under the care of Dr. Vincent Parnell .... And, 8 years later, look at this handsome, sweet, funny, healthy young man.  

Each year we walk for JR.  We exercise the heart and remind ourselves just how precious life is.  We walk for everyone.
