Amazing news!!! Less than one month ago, Walker received the precious gift of a healthy and fully formed heart!! In his 4 short years of life, Walker has undergone 2 open heart surgeries, numerous cardiac cath procedures, cardiac arrest and now a heart transplant. Given the complexities that come with receiving a new heart, he will continue to be followed closely by the cardiac team at Childrens Hospital Colorado. But now he is free from oxygen, free from continuous IV medications and has a heart that is healthy enough to keep up with his active imagination! Please consider a donation to the Courage Classic on behalf of Walker so that we may continue to support him, his family and all families who seek care for their child in the Heart Institute at Children's Hospital Colorado!
From Walker’s parents (Kristin and Doug):
"Walker is an outgoing child with a love for life and a go get it attitude. He is so smart and loves to try new things. We cherish every milestone he achieves and are beyond blessed to call him ours. Walker faces a lifelong journey with a congenital heart defect. It is because of the wonderful staff at this hospital that we get to hold, love, and watch our baby boy grow. We will forever be grateful for their tireless efforts, support, and hope."
