Dalton is our energetic 3-year-old. He has demonstrated immeasurable amounts of bravery having endured two open heart surgeries and a stroke.His heart journey began when he was seven days old. He underwent his first open heart surgery to correct a congenital heart defect known as Transposition of the Great Arteries.
At age two, he went in for his second heart surgery to expand a narrowing pulmonary artery to correct a condition called Supravalvar Pulmonary Stenosis. A couple of days into his surgical recovery, he suffered a stroke that weakened his left arm and hand. Today, his heart is healthier and full of joy. His arm and hand grow stronger each day to keep up with his strong and active spirit.
