Congenital heart defect survivor
At just 13-days old, a routine check-up uncovered a heart murmur. That was just the beginning…
A mere 13 days after bringing her home, Kristen's parents were told she had two holes in her heart. Six months later, Jamie and Andrew Seal waited anxiously while their daughter was put on a bypass machine, her heart was stopped, and surgeons opened her tiny chest to perform open-heart surgery. Days later, the Seals brought home a brand-new Kristen. Today, she's a very active and playful 4-year-old, and if you ask about her scars, she'll tell you, "They're for my special heart."

Joe Newton’s skills in the kitchen were matched by his wonderful wit. A stroke threatened to take both away…
The banter between Joe and his wife Shirley was infectious, especially when enjoying good food with good friends. But after his stroke, Shirley wondered if her gourmet-cook husband could ever eat solid food again, let alone smile. With strength and support, Joe regained the use of his left arm and leg, and slowly reclaimed his ability to swallow and find words when speaking. Shirley got "her Joe" back — along with the banter, the cooking, and the laughter.
