Hello, my name is Noah and I just had my 3rd birthday. I love choo choo trains, race cars and tractors. I was born with a broken heart, or as Mommy says hypo something or other. Too many big words for me.

Thank you with all my heart for taking the time to watch my video.

God bless you.

Noah was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, the left ventricle of his heart never fully developed. The cause is unknown. The treatment is a series of three open heart surgeries to reroute the blood flow through the heart. His first surgery, the Norwood procedure, was when he was only 5 days old, the second, the Glenn procedure, was at 8 months. At nearly two years old he had emergency surgery to fix a failed tricuspid valve and install a pacemaker. His third HLHS surgery, the Fontan procedure, is scheduled for February 4, 2014. This will complete the rerouting of blood flow through his heart, lungs and body.

While Noah is in the hospital, which could be 1-6 weeks, and for some time afterwards while he needs care at home, his mother Judy, who is his sole financial support, will not be able to work. Noah will need special care at home for at least 3 months while recovering. The expenses of a extended hospital visit and home health care will be massive. The lack of income alone wouldn't sustainable for his family.

If you can't give, please share with those around you. Encourage people to view this campaign, as that will increase the visibility of the page on Indiegogo. Any support, prayers or kind comments are appreciated. Thank you.
