Life is why we walk.
Thanks to all our walkers, donors and volunteers who have accepted the challenge to help fight heart disease and stroke. We cannot achieve our mission without each one of you!
Lincoln was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. He has had three open heart surgeries to reroute the blood flow utilizing his half of a heart to do the workload of a normal heart. Lincoln had his surgeries at six days old, four months old and two and a half years old. All with rough recoveries, multiple hospital stays and long term monitoring with medications. Lincoln is now five years old and loves preschool, dinosaurs, construction vehicles and being outside. He is smart, creative and one of the funniest kids you will meet!
