I am supporting the Courage Classic for patients like Trig.
As an infant Trig struggled to eat, often would breath fast and didn't gain weight. At 4 months old he was diagnosed with multiple VSDs as well as an ASD which are essentially holes in the heart. The largest VSD was closed with an artificial device thus limiting his time in surgery.
Now at 8 years old a few small VSDs and the ASD are open but he is an active 3rd grader and a true Colorado kid! He took up fishing last summer and loves camping. He is currently trynig to master the Rubik Cube and riding a bike. He likes to sketch and can often be found carrying around a book of his creations.
And what makes this cause even more important to me is that Trig is my cousin and it has been amazing to see his transformation over the years thanks to this surgery and the continuous care of Childrens Hospital.
The Courage Classic is not only a personal challenge, but also an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children.
