Caelen’s Story

Caelen has Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and has spent a lot of time in the hospital, especially most of his first year.  He has developmental delays and is in need of physical, occupational, speech and feeding therapies.  He is in need of a new heart and is on twenty-two medications daily. Just recently, Caelen has undergone plastic bronchitis surgery to assist in relieving the infection that is continually caused. The purpose of this surgery is to assist in cutting down on the infections that he has.  Both the infections and surgery are very painful but the hopeful outcome is to make Caelen a healthier little boy. Despite his disabilities, Caelen always has a smile and loves to pretend that he is a super hero or a vampire
