Welcome to Team Lucas Page
Thank you for visiting our Congenital Heart Walk team fundraising page!
Lucas was born with Transposition of the Great Arteries and had open heart surgery when he was 7 days old. Today he is doing well as a growing, healthy and happy 9-year-old boy. However, over the past nine years his aortic root continues to enlarge, causing leakage, murmurs, and other problems. He has a great cardiologist who monitors him closely. She uses a number system and has always told us if "his number" gets above 40 we most likely will need to intervene with surgery. Last month, during his checkup, his doctor told us his number jumped to 39.
We are blessed each day that we have our strong healthy boy. While there is a possibility of complications down the road, we don't let that stop Lucas from living life to the fullest. His favorite hobbies this year include playing baseball, golf, and Fortnite. He is starting 4th grade and loves math.
There are so many unknowns with congenital heart disease because no one heart defect is the same. The best gift is research. Since 2010, the Congenital Heart Walk has raised over $10 million! This will be our 6th year walking in this event and we look forward to it every year.
We ask that you make a donation today in honor of our little guy. You are also more than welcome to walk with us on 9/22/18. The more the merrier.
We will talk to you soon. Thank you for your support!
Love, The Allen Family
