Olsen was born with HLHS and spent the first 6 months of his life in the hospital. He had multiple surgeries and had a tough recovery but he proved to be a tough little guy.
When he returned for his second stage of surgery, he coded for 53 minutes. During those 53 minutes, the medical team at OSF helped him make a miraculous recovery. The help he received that day and all the other days he spent there has helped turn him into the thriving 3-year-old he is today.
We are passionate about fundraising to give back to the medical staff that gave us so much and to help give other heart warriors like Olsen the best care they can get.
