On November 8, 2011, our oldest son, Giovanni, was born with a congenital heart defect known as Pulmonary Atresia with Intact Ventricular Septum/Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome. Despite some very challenging times (4 cardiac catheters, 2 open heart surgeries, feeding tube operations, and numerous other procedures), Giovanni is alive and thriving beyond all doctors' expectation! As with many kids like Gio, this is a lifelong struggle and repeat surgeries are the norm. With funding research, the doctors and surgeons are able to find new ways to perfect surgeries and treatments for these little warriors.
To do our part in raising awareness and funding, we are continuing Team Marra to benefit the Children's Heart Foundation, as we have done since 2012. We would like to ask for your support by either joining the team or sending in your tax-deductible donation today.
