Meet brothers Gavin (8) and Taosies (7)! These special guys joined our family through adoption and from day one, have shared so many precious moments together. Their bond is unbreakable and together they are conquering congenital heart disease.
Both brothers have different congenital heart defects, and nothing can keep them apart when one is undergoing outpatient testing, heart catheterization or even open-heart surgery. Just as they support and love each other through the difficult times of a journey with CHD, the Pediatric Congenital Heart Association has supported our family every step of the way.
Please support Gavin and Taosies in our fundraiser for PCHA, so they can continue to support heart heroes and their families around the country! Read below for more information on their initiatives:
