Hayden's Heart INC
Hayden's Heart is a foundation that has been created to honor our son, Hayden Dorsett. Hayden was born with a rare heart defect called HLHS - Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome -which occurs in 1 out of every 10,000 births. Hayden was born and cared for at CHOP (Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia) and was projected to undergo three open-heart surgeries to fix his heart. Hayden fought hard through his first and second surgeries, but through his surgical process also suffered from a brain injury. Through it all he was the smiliest, happiest baby we have ever known and truly loved life- even with all of his obstacles. On August 16, 2012 at only 5 months and 4 days old, Hayden unexpectedly lost his life and joined countless other heart babies who have also lost their fight against CHD.
Our mission with his foundation is to not only raise CHD awareness and to help keep Hayden's memory alive, but to also help many families with their immense medical bills and travel expenses, etc.
