When I don't know what to do, I defer to people with greater knowledge, greater wisdom, greater experience, and greater perspective.
And Marshall's health is no exception.
The difference between life and death for hundreds of babies, like Marshall, born with special hearts, comes down to a lot of things. But in the process of securing the help Marshall needed, I found it often came down to knowledge, money, resources, and access to information.
We're working as hard as we can to gather all of the above. And sometimes that just isn't enough.

Any donations we receive will be designated solely for the purpose of ensuring Marshall gets the best care we can offer during our time with him. Though I hope that time is long, there are no guarantees. But one thing is certain: every dollar we raise (beyond covering Marshall's medical and travel expenses) will be used to establish a foundation dedicated to helping other families as they manage their child's congenital heart disease and congenital heart defects.
An anonymous donor has offered to match every dollar in donations up to $10,000.
Think of the number of lives we could help if we could.
Please help if you can.
So sorry to hear you are headed back to Boston. Thoughts and prayers are with you!
