Tyson

  • Shelburne, Ontario Canada

"Tyson was born with severe congenital heart defects including Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome and Tricuspid Atresia, among others. He also has narrowing in the pulmonary veins of his left lung. So basically, he journeys through life with half a heart and only one well-functioning lung. He's had three open heart surgeries at Sick Kid's hospital as well so many other procedures and tests that we couldn't even begin to count them. Tyson has two older brothers, one older sister, and one younger sister. He is currently five years old, attends Kindergarten, and plays as much sports as his heart allows him. He is spunky and has some serious attitude, but we believe it's his strong-willed attitude that has helped him fight his battle. The journey is not over and he still struggles with his health especially through the winter months, but Tyson remains a true warrior and fights with determination and spirit." - Melissa (Mom)
