The Story

Eli Brooks Whittemore was born July 13th 2010. At a routine ultrasound he was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect. Tricuspid atresia, pulmonary atresia, ventricular septal defect and atrial septal defect. His first open heart surgery was eight days after he was born. His second surgery was at 3 and a half months and he is now 3 years old and in Philadelphia preparing for his 3rd and final surgery on June 10th. Why Philadelphia? Simple...Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia is known for their outstanding cardiac care for children and one of the top centers in the country.

Israel and Kati are thankful for Eli's insurance coverage but there is still so much cost involved! The cost for testing, the surgery deductible of $4500, travel expenses, many weeks away from work and medication after the surgery.

Take a look at their blog for updates on how he is doing. www.elistory.blogspot.com

Whether you are able to give $5 or $5000, all of it is appreciated and will come as a huge blessing for the family.
Thank you!
