Eric's story is pretty long, and complicated. We are creating this site in hopes of letting others understand just a little bit about this courageous fighter. Eric was born with a Congenital Heart Defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. He has undergone 5 open-heart surgeries over the course of his 44 years to correct leaks and complete valve replacement. Unfortunately, it was discovered shortly after his birth that he has a rare blood disorder as well; Diamond Black-Fan Anemia. Eric was doing really well until just before Thanksgiving of 2015. Since then, he has been seen by numerous specialists in hopes of finding a way to help him. As a family, we think it is important for you to know what an amazing fighter he has been. We will continue to update as much as possible, and thank you so very much for your continued prayers.
