Hi I am Nolan Ryan Powell and my Parents are Maggie Ryan and Jacob Powell. I was born 6 weeks early on August 8th. I weighed 2lbs 11oz at birth. I was also born with a congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Basically it means the left side of my heart didn't form properly. I have to undergo a series of heart surgeries within the first 4 years of my life so my heart will function more like a normal heart. I am currently in the NICU just trying to gain enough weight so the doctors feel comfortable enough to operate on my little heart. Mom is staying in Minneapolis with my grandma and grandpa. She is not working so she can be at the hospital with me everyday. Dad is at home in Superior, working very hard to support me and mom. Every donation we receive will be used for traveling, bills, and other costs related to the time I've spent in the hospital so far as well as my future stays. Any donation is appreciated and so are your prayers and well wishes. Thank you for all of your support!
