THE STORY:

A baby boy was born June 23, 2010 with a congenital heart defect.  Inside his little heart held courage, strength and a rhythm. His first courageous test of bravery took place at 7 days old where he underwent his first open heart surgery. As this little boy grew, climbed and talked, his love for Godzilla came forth. To relate to a giant protecting others came natural. At 2 years of age, this little boy underwent his second open heart surgery. This time, a stroke happened. Momentarily slowed by this unexpected change in health only to continue to grow strong and play vividly through imagination. A heart journey filled with tests only meant that stomping out heart disease needed to be done the Godzilla way. Now 5 years old, this young boy gives Godzilla hugs, enjoys Godzilla movies, and plays with his Godzilla toys. We know him as Dalton, our son, brother, friend! Help us raise funds for a foundation committed to fight against heart disease. Please support TEAM DALTON in our efforts to honor Dalton and his amazing heart journey stomping out heart disease the Godzilla way!
