I remember you too Beth! We are forever grateful — how to say how much? There are not enough words. We are so fortunate he was born at a place the likes of Mayo Clinic with people such as yourself around him.

Nov 4, 2016 · Doctors Dance With Patient at Her Wedding, 17 Years After Saving Her Life

Dr. Dearani saved my son’s life as well, with an emergency open heart surgery a few hours after he was born and diagnosed with Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return. A few years later he operated on my adult cousin’s heart for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Needless to say, he’s a pretty important guy in our lives! Max is a happy, healthy 13-year-old boy thanks to Dr. Dearani and the whole team who has cared for Max over the years, from cardiologist Dr. Cabalka to pediatrician Dr. Homme to all the nurses and specialists who do amazing things for babies and kids every day. I’m really happy to see articles like this honoring them! One in 110 babies are born with a heart defect, and need heroes like these.
