Hayden Over the Years:

This year he will be turning 16 years old and is in his freshman year of High School. When he was born the doctors gave him 6 months to Live. Words can’t express how thankful we are for this boy. This page you can learn more about Hayden’s Condition and why we fund raise each year.

Learn About Hayden's Hypo-Plastic
Left Heart Syndrome

Dear Friends and Family-
In 2004 our son, Hayden, was born with Hypo-plastic Left Heart Syndrome. Over the past fourteen and a half years, he has received amazing care from the Pediatric Cardiology Department at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Each day, so many children and their families are cared for and supported by this dedicated team of medical professionals.

We are thankful for the doctors who saved Hayden’s life (more than once), the nurses who cared for him and us, the social workers who kept us informed and listened to our needs and the child life specialists who attempted to make the hospital seem like a normal place. Mostly, we are thankful to have Hayden.

"We are Thankful for Hayden, your love and support and our amazing doctors."

Haydenstay3In order to give something back and allow other children to benefit in the same way Hayden has, we organize an annual charity golf tournament to benefit Johns Hopkins Pediatric Cardiology and the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and PICU. Thanks to the contributions from local businesses, community members, other pediatric cardiology families and our family and friends, we have raised over $350,000 for our two wonderful organizations.

We look forward to your continued support and hope that you will join us for this year’s event. If you are not a golfer, you can still support us through donations and sponsorships.

-Rob, Ali & Hayden
