Meet Nolan in Lake Zurich Illinois
My name is Nolan and I am 10 years old.
When I was 4 years old, I had high blood pressure at my check-up. My doctor ran some tests to find out why I had high blood pressure.
My doctors found out a few months later that I had a problem with my heart called Coarctation of the Aorta. I have had three heart surgeries, but I am doing very well now.
I still take blood pressure medicine, but I can play almost any sport that I want to. My favorite sports are baseball and basketball.
My school has a Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser every year, and I raised over $4,100 this year so that doctors could learn new ways to help kids like me who have problems with their hearts.”
