Kathy's Story

My son Robert was born 5/18/05. He was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect right after his check up. He had atrial and ventricular septal defects. Very large holes in his heart. He had life saving open heart surgery at 7 weeks old. he is now 8 this month. he plays football, basketball and baseball. We are so very blessed. Also, I was morbidly obese, and for my young family, I decided to have gastric bypass to ensure I am here for them as they grow. I had diabetes and high blood pressure and high LDL. I have lost 47 lbs in 2 months. I want to live for them.
