Nolan is why!
Please join us in honoring Nolan at the 2021 Virtual Heart Walk! You can support Team Nolan by getting outside and taking a walk in your neighborhood in leu of the formal event on May 22nd. If you have a Team Nolan shirt throw it on, if not wear red and support the Heart Association and Nolan!
Nolan was born with multiple heart defects that were identified at his 20 week ultrasound. Throughout the first year of Nolan's life he was monitored closely by his Doctor and Cardiologist. With each visit he continued to show improvements. 19 months later the heart defects that were identified at birth have self-corrected. At Nolan's echocardiogram when he was 9 months old the Cardiologist identified another heart defect, a subaortic membrane/ridge (a ridge below the aorta where the blood flows into the heart). At this point it is not showing any blood flow obstruction so there are no interventions needed at this time.
We feel very lucky and blessed that Nolan is a healthy little boy after such a rough start, but there are so many more people that could use your help. This walk is very near and dear to us and it is our way to give back and most importantly, honor Nolan. Donations made to the Heart Association will help scientist develop lifesaving breakthroughs and further research to help save lives.
