In March 2006, we were blessed with the birth of our daughter, Mary Elizabeth (M.E.). The excitement of this blessed event was short-lived when three weeks later we were informed that M.E. needed life-saving heart surgery to correct a very underdeveloped main artery. Fortunately for us, M.E.'s local pediatrician and then the heart specialist detected the symptoms and made the life-saving diagnosis. She was rushed by helicopter to Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital where she underwent open-heart surgery.
This life-changing experience, along with our heart felt desire to encourage and support children in need, became the foundation for the start of M.E.'s Team.
We hope that through the collaboration of our efforts and the support of our community, great things will be accomplished!
