In 2002, our 6-month-old son, Zach, received a terrifying diagnosis. After a few months of unexplained wheezing and difficulty breathing, he was finally diagnosed with a rare cardiothoracic disorder that required open-heart surgery. 2/12
Looking back 15 years, I still tear up recalling the fear my husband and I felt when we learned of the magnitude of Zach’s condition, and as we faced a rough 10 days of uncertainty. 3/12
