Welcome to Nolan Pfister's CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your loving support, continued prayers, and heartfelt words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting and cheering Nolan along this journey.

We are beyond grateful we brought Nolan down to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN in May 2022.  It was decided, as a precautionary measure, to set up a series of appointments for Nolan with a specialist in cardiology/genetic disorders. The appointments were completed over a few days.  After further review of the results and thorough consultation with the medical team, Nolan's evaluation demonstrated severe tricuspid regurgitation and severe enlargement of the right ventricle with borderline reduced systolic function. His exercise stress test also showed abnormalities in heart rhythm. Genetic testing was sent on Nolan, and three different genetic variants were also identified. Due to the family history of his older brother, Jackson, and these new findings, Nolan was equipped with a Life Vest, or external defibrillator, until a procedure took place. 

Up until this point, Nolan has had no symptoms and has lead an active, healthy lifestyle.  We were all completely shocked to hear these results. Our family trusts we were lead in the right direction, and are confident Nolan is in the best hands possible. We are comforted that his BIG Brother continues to guide and help him along the way.
