The Story

Michael was born at 33 weeks. The day he was born he was diagnosed with Hypoppastic Right Heart Syndrome, Pulmonary Atresia and Interventricular Septum Defect. At three years old Michael got his first pacemaker. Michael has had numerous hospital procedures and 5 open heart surgeries. He is a living, breathing miracle. This summer Michael will to travel to Philadelphia to participate in the Survivorship Program at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). This program will evaluate how Michael's heart repair is holding up and especially his liver function. This evaluation is critical to Michael's present and future health care. He will be evaluated at CHOP, which has one of the leading children's heart center in the United States. Traveling from AZ to Philly is terribly expensive. Please consider making a donation to help us GET MICHAEL TO PHILLY! Airline miles are also greatly appreciated! Any donation is loved and appreciated. Please feel free to share Michael's story. Mil gracias ❤️

First, our family would like to humbly thank each and everyone of our family and friends for the generous donations towards Michael's trip to CHOP. We have gotten donations through our web site and mailed to us. It has warmed our hearts to know how much support Michael has. 

Second, due to unforeseen circumstances we have to postpone Michael's trip to CHOP. He WILL STILL go to Philly to be evaluated by the CHOP team. But instead of going the week of July 17th he is rescheduled for the week of October 16th. 

Third, medically speaking Michael is healthy and stable. Before CHOP, Michael will attend heart camp with #nickandkellyschildrensheartfund and then he will start his freshman year at Bourgade Catholic High School. He is beyond excited to start high school and we are so very proud of our Michael. 

We continue to take much needed donations for Michael's trip to #CHOP. No donation is too small. Please feel free to share Michael's story with family and friends.

Thank you again for all your love and support for #ourmichael. Abrazos. 
❤️The Alaniz Family
