Update - 10/21/2015: Elliot earned his wings at 1:05 pm. He is now able to rest comfortably. The funds from this effort will go toward covering the medical expenses generated from his initial surgery and extended hospital stay as well as expenses related to his memorial.
--------------- original description below----
The goal of this fundraiser is to make sure that our dear friends Alissa and Mike are able to focus their attention on Elliot's needs without concern of the costs being incurred.
Elliot was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome or HLHS at 22 weeks. This basically means that the left side of his heart is underdeveloped and will never function. To make his heart function correctly, he will need to go through 3 surgeries. Without these surgeries Elliot will not survive.
The first one will be days after he is born, the second at about 6 months and the third at about three years. It's pretty amazing what they can do these days!
While this is a rare and serious condition the odds are in his favor thanks to medical intervention!
