The family and friends of Jessica and Miguel are uniting to raise money to help their baby boy overcome Hypoplacstic Left Heart Syndrome.

Jessica and Miguel are expecting their brand new baby boy, Will, in November. Unfortunately, during a recent visit with their doctor, they discovered a serious problem: Will has acquired a rare heart condition that will require a series of surgeries over the next few years to repair. Known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, it occurs when parts of the left side of the heart do not fully develop. Without treatment, this condition is uniformly fatal; with early treatment, however, there is a good chance he will survive. As scary as this news is, thankfully it was noticed early in the pregnancy.
Jessica and Miguel are both wonderful people who truly care about others. They are some of the kindest, most generous people I have ever met. I can’t imagine how overwhelmed they must be feeling faced with such difficult news, in addition to the financial challenges that come along with it as well. It is my hope that this fundraiser will make a difference for them in this stressful time.
Will is going to need three surgeries over the next few years (one immediately after he is born in November) in order to make his heart work the way it is supposed to. Please join me in donating funds to help cover some of the medical expenses they will be incurring in the coming months and years. If there is any chance some of their financial burden could be lifted, the whole family will be at a better place to heal.
Thank you in advance for helping this lovely family catch their breath a little during a very joyous and difficult time and helping little Will fight for his life.
