Ethan was born in 2011 with a congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). In simple terms that means he has only half a heart. So far he has had 3 open heart surgeries and 2 heart catheterizations with no guarantee he won't need more in the future. Please help us raise awareness congenital heart defects which are the #1 birth defect and affect about 1 in 100 births. Consider joining our team or donating to this worthwhile cause.
