Maximus was born with a CHD called Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA) with Ventricle Septal defect (VSD) and Pulmonary Stenosis. He was born in the Special Delivery Unit (SDU) of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and was transferred about an hour after birth to the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU). At two days old, this brave, little heart warrior underwent an Arterial Switch. Max will never know how brave he was, and he will never know how scared we were.

Today, Max is a happy and healthy child who attends school, loves to go to playgrounds, ride his plasma car, sing and dance, and run everywhere he goes! He is a joy to be around and we are thankful every day to have him in our lives!
