Meet Colin in Crown Point

Updated:Sep 20,2012
Colin Crownover KWH INI love to spend time on the computer playing games, playing at the park, listening to music – especially Yanni.

I was born with a heart murmur and a congenital heart defect – double outlet right ventricle. Thanks to the American Heart Association, I was able to take medication right after I was born until I was 1 month old and strong enough to have my first surgery. After a series of surgeries during my first 2 years, I am now healthy and energetic.

I take 3 different medications every day. I now have a clean bill of health and won’t have to have anymore surgeries.

I got to do my first Hoops for Heart at my school this year. I wish that other kids with sick hearts will get better from the research that the AHA has or will do so they can have fun like me.
