Anyone who knows me well enough has heard my story about my son Nicholas.If you haven't just ask and I will tell you anytime! He was diagnosed with Dilated Cardiomyopathy back in May of 2008 at the age of 15. Fancy words for having a huge heart that doesn't beat well enough to circulate the blood your body needs.He was finishing his sophomore year of high school, when life as we knew it came to a screeching halt. One day he was a care free hockey playing teen and the next was a whirlwind of cardiologists, tests and the dreaded words heart transplant. I nearly lost my mind with worry. I was at a loss as to how I could help my son deal with this life changing diagnosis, manage all these medications, tests and hospital visits.With the help and all the wonderful support I received from The Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation (CCF) our journey has been a much easier road to travel. Our CCF family has been a lifesaver! Please consider supporting our hometown walking team named Nick's Chicks. Event proceeds will go to funding more research for treatment of children and support services for families. Thank you!
