How fortunate he was that his mom saw that something was wrong and took him to their nearby Johns Hopkins Hospital. Here he was seen by a young pediatric cardiologist Dr. Helen Tausig.

Find out how his life was affected and think about how you can add to the stories of success for the 1 in 100 children born “blue babies” in the developing world through Gift of Life North East Ohio.
