Grant was born in Singapore. We found out shortly after his birth he had a heart murmur and his diagnosis quickly escalated to needing an immediate coarctation repair. We made the decision to stay in Singapore for his surgery rather than risk flying back to the United States. Grant’s surgery was successful and we moved backed to Texas about 6 months later and met with Dr. Dreyer at Texas Children’s Hospital. Grant has Aortic Valve Stenosis and will need a valve replacement someday, but he has also had two valvuloplasty procedures. After years of excellent care at TCH by his doctors and nurses, Grant was invited to attend Beaver Creek Ranch in 2018, and for the first time met other boys who also deal with annual (or more) doctor visits, surgeries, medication, and scars. Although Grant is fortunate enough to live an active lifestyle by playing water polo and being in his high school marching band, Hunt with Heart has given him amazing opportunities to experience confidence and success. Grant just turned 18 and will be graduating from high school this May. He plans to attend college next year and has received four acceptances but has not made a final decision.
