Heart Disease Survivor, Finn

Finn continues to persevere after 17 procedures and two open heart surgeries. It’s personal to his mom, who says he would not be here without the help of the American Heart Association.

While pregnant, Finn’s mom learned he had a heart issue.

“To be honest I can’t even see Finn getting past birth without the American Heart Association.”

Finn would need multiple surgeries in order to survive.
