THE STORY:

Baby Benjamin, as our daughter Jackie calls him, is our little boy who was born 9/8. We were overjoyed when we found out we were having a little boy. We were devastated when we were told to terminate, as he most likely wouldn't make it to birth. Refusing to accept this news, we decided to seek out the opinion of some of the greatest medical staff on the planet : the cardiology team at Boston Children's Hospital.  Ben has a severe form of HLHS, a condition where a part of his heart is missing. His aorta is very small and he has tricuspid valve regurgitation. He also has Pulmonary vein stenosis, which means his veins to his lungs are trying to close on their own. Children with this typically do not reach adulthood. The goal of this page, is to raise money for his medical care. Miracles don't come cheap, and bills add up quickly. We have been in the cardiac ICU a little over 2 months now. Ben is set for his third surgery the week of Thanksgiving. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of the donations and prayers. With love, The Stangroom Family
