Hi, my name is Michael, and I am excited to be a 2017 Ambassador!
When my twin sister and I were born, I was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect - Critical Aortic Stenosis. My first night they gave me a 50% chance of survival. Once stabilized, they put me on a helicopter to Children's Hospital in Denver for surgery. The team took great care of me and my parents!
A couple years later, my doctors said I needed to have open heart surgery with a Ross Procedure, to remove my bad aortic valve. My doctors and nurses were fun, and there were movies, toys and pancakes!
I enjoy playing sports, have my junior scuba certification and love to ski.
Join our team and help us support Children's Hospital Colorado! We are working together to make a difference at the hospital and its life-saving work and research... which helps kids just like me!
