Casen’s Story
Casen was born August 31, 2009, 10 weeks early, so his lungs were underdeveloped but other than that he seemed healthy. One day his heart rate rose to over 240 beats per minute and that is when he was diagnosed. They put him on heart medication and we thought everything was fine, until one day he was in the hospital for RSV and his heart went into cardiac dysrhythmia. We lost our only child when he was only 6 months old. It is too late for him, but it is not too late for the thousands of families whose child is at risk or diagnosed with the disease.

Casen was a precious little man with infectious brown eyes and an unforgettable smile. He loved being held and talked to. He was a fighter and never gave up until the end.
