Team Debbie May

is walking for Debbie's grandson, Christopher:

Team Debbie May_SNE Spotlight

 

Debbie May's grandson, Christopher has Pulonary Atresia with Ventricular Septal Defect and Major Aorta Pulmonary Collateral Arteries.
In short - Pulmonary Atresia with VSD/MPCAS.


Christopher had his first open heart surgery when he was just a few weeks old. His second surgery happened when he was 10 months old. His third surgery occurred just before his 2nd birthday, and his third surgery was just before his 4th birthday. Christopher is averaging 3-4 heart catheterizations a year, and will continue to need these throughout his life to ensure strong blood flow and pressure throughout his arteries. He will also need to continue with open heart surgeries as his conduit needs revising.


Christopher spent the first 3 years of his life with very low oxygen levels, which caused him to have low energy levels and be underweight. Since his last open heart surgery his oxygen levels are where they need to be and he has been able to live a farily normal life. Debbie and her family are so blessed to have Christopher in their lives!


Today, we all walk for Christopher!
