Meet Draven everyone

Ladies and Gentlemen; This is little guy is Draven (Named after the title character in the move “The Crow.”) Draven was born in July 2008 with hypo-plastic left heart syndrome – a severe heart defect where both chambers on the left side are under developed and do not pump blood. He required surgery at 6 days old and then had a second open heart surgery at 5 months old. He went into heart failure in November 2010 and went into the hospital for two months, was released as stable and was placed on a transplant list in June for a new heart.
