G3 Strong

Gerald Ray Gomez III “ G3” was born October 23rd 2019 with TAPVR a congenital heart defect that went undetected during pregnancy. He had emergency open heart surgery 1 day after birth and then had a second surgery at 6 months old. G3 has been recovering as expected and continues to show his strength and fight each and every day ! We have been blessed with an amazing medical team and continue to thank God for everything he has and continues to do for us. 

Our team is raising critical funds for congenital heart defects! Congenital heart defects are the most commonly occurring birth defect, affecting approximately 1 in 110 babies born, or a child born every 15 minutes. Congenital heart defects are the leading cause of birth-defect related mortality.

Funded research is making a very big difference in the lives of CHD patients, helping to reduce incidences and increase survival, longevity and quality of life. Research has made a very big impact, and with survival and longevity increasing, even more research is needed to help address lifelong challenges that CHD patients will face. Every dollar in support of The Children’s Heart Foundation helps to further their mission: to fund the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of congenital heart defects.
