Year Honored: 

The majority of Nathan's first year was spent in the hospital. By nine months old he had already three open heart surgeries. The last surgery was to repair his aortic arch and the doctors did not think it was successful. The decision was made to take him off all ventilators to let God do his work. His parents were told on a Tuesday that they didn't think he would see the weekend. He beat the odds.

Nathan was born on July 14, 2004. He was diagnosed with Hypo-plastic left heart syndrome. He had open heart surgery two days later.

Nathan finally got to come home and meet his brothers. Shockingly, to everyone that didn't know,

Nathan slowly recovered. Before his fourth birthday he started to have heart problems again. He went into heart failure. There were complications, which led to the cortical vision impairment, brain injury and the wheelchair. He received his new heart on May 24, 2008.

He is a terribly funny boy and enjoys life. He has three brothers and one sister.
