Nineteen-year-old Nathan was a three-sport athlete in high school when he decided to participate in the blood drive. During the drive, his blood pressure reading was alarmingly high.  An MRI revealed that Nathan had a serious, congenital heart defect. A major coronary artery was directed to the wrong side of Nathan’s heart. A daily runner, Nathan was stunned and for a while depressed upon learning the news.

A corrective surgery and a commitment to living a healthy lifestyle have given Nathan a positive prognosis. Although he no longer participates in contact sports he has become a competitive track and field athlete and is back in the game. He’s grateful and embracing his second chance by participating in community events and connecting to other pediatric heart patients.
