This is the Jacob Scholting fund the kid with big heart. Funds go to medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

Jacob was born January 31st 2001 withen an hour of his birth he was turing blue and he was rushed to intensive care. His was diagnosed with Pulmmonary Atresia w/vsd. He had open heart surgery at six days old where they patched the vsd and put a goretex shunt in to act as a valve. Unfortunatetly the shunt will not grow with his body therefor he had to have another open heart surgery when he was six monthes old this time using a pigs valve.

Jacob is not as active as most kids his age and he wants to be able to do the things that other children are doing. He has many trophies from karate but he just can't handle it at this point in time.
Over the past year he has been in physical therapy, had echo's of his heart, had to wear a monitor and have two mri's.
We found out this week that Jacob not only has to have his third open heart surgery on July 27th this year but it will be in another state and he is 2mm short of having the surgery done through the groin therefor they will have to cut his chestbone which is longer recovery time.
As you know medical bills and all the other necessities that come along with it are very expensive. Jacob may not have the healthiest heart but he does have the most giving heart. He is very active in the community with helping to feed the needy, donating toys to children,money and time to the church and he would give everything he ownes away just to make another person happy. Please keep him in your prayers and know that any support given is greatly appreciated.
