On November 8, 2011, our oldest son Giovanni was born with a congenital heart defect known as Pulmonary Atresia with Intact Ventricular Septum. That was over seven years ago and despite some very challenging times (2 open heart surgeries, 4 cardiac catheterizations including implant placements, 3 feeding tube operations, and many other procedures), Giovanni is doing very well. Thanks to advances in modern science, our son is alive and thriving beyond all the doctors’ expectations! As with many kids like Gio, this is a lifelong struggle and repeat surgeries are the norm. With funding research, the doctors and surgeons are able to find new ways to perfect surgeries and treatments for these little warriors.

To do our part in raising awareness, I am continuing Team Marra to benefit the Children’s Heart Foundation, as we have done since 2012. I would like to ask for your support by joining our team or making a tax deductible donation.

Let's give all these warriors a fighting chance!
