You Would Never Know

To know my son Liam is to love him. To know Liam's big heart, you'd never know half of it was missing.

To see the passion with which Liam lives today after seven years survival of his severe and incurable Congenital Heart Disease, you would never know how hard fought that treasured life has been.

No, as long as his tiny chest is covered by a dinosaur T-shirt, you would never know that it is etched in scars, that it's been pried opened five times, and that even while it's been closed, that wires have snaked through his body and into his heart taking and leaving pieces behind.

You'd never know what our family has endured to preserve our miracle, but now that you do, will you help us make a difference for Liam and the nearly two million Americans like him who are afflicted but not defeated by CHD?

Support us by joining our Congenital Heart Walk team or making a donation and let us know that you know, and that you care.

To know Liam is to know a miracle in the flesh. Please support us as we walk for research to sustain Liam's miracle and the miracles of millions of other families whose children you might never know.
