Joel: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

How many smiles can you get out of one little baby? Well once you meet Joel, we think you will agree that the number is endless.

Joel came into LWB’s care initially through our nutrition program. After an evaluation of his heart murmur, we found out that he would need life-saving surgery to repair his multiple heart defects, including a single ventricle, complete endocardial cushion defect, functional single atrium, PDA, and pulmonary stenosis. That’s a mouthful to describe such a little guy! We were told that he could wait until he was eight months old, so arrangements were made to send this cutie pie to LWB’s Heartbridge Healing Home for some TLC and time to grow stronger. Lately we have noticed that Joel has started to have increased cyanosis, and after consulting with the pediatric cardiologist his surgery has been moved up.

Your donation in any amount will keep Joel smiling and will be greatly appreciated.
