Hi, my name is Heath. This website encompasses my life’s journey and my mission to help others thru my foundation. Thru major adversities, with an incredible team of medical professionals, the most amazing family in the world and my shear will to live…I’m here and able to tell my story to you. I was born with a rare condition, Coronary Ostial Stenosis, and had been hospitalized since I was born; 2/22/18 until 9/27/18. During that time, I underwent over 27 procedures and ultimately (thanks to an incredible, selfless donor and his/her family) I became a donor heart recipient. I received my gift of life and underwent transplant on 7/19/18. The fight has been arduous, but I am currently home with my family and thriving! I hope you will read my blog posts and feel inspired, reassured, hopeful…whatever feelings my story can give you that you needed, I hope you will get.
