Our entire team at miFLAVOUR is thrilled to be part of the Noah’s story, a boy that was born with half a heart.
We were contacted by Noah’s mom, Tanasha, to see if our little bakery, miFLAVOUR, would be willing to help with a charitable donation and sponsor efforts to help get Noah to Boston Children’s for his 3rd open heart surgery. When we heard about his story and saw the hope in his eyes, we couldn’t resist but to help contribute toward his recovery. We wish everyone could meet Noah in person. He is the happiest little boy you could ever meet.
Help us get Noah to Boston for a chance at open heart surgery at Boston Children’s.
Noah Alderson was born with half a heart and has been on a breathing ventilator and oxygen since birth. He is a 4 year old boy from Spokane, Wa. He was scheduled to have his 3rd open heart surgery in Spokane in the next year but his parents were devastated when told that the surgery that had been planned, he was no longer a candidate for. This lead them on several trips to Seattle children’s hospital, his parents were sent for several second opinions all of which came back with negative news that they could not help Noah with his heart.
After researching a specialist at the number one Children’s heart hospital, Boston Children’s they found a doctor willing to try to attempt a surgery on his heart called a biventricular repair. On August 15th they have an appointment in Boston to go and see this doctor for him to assess Noah and ensure he is a candidate for surgery. If all goes well he will have surgery August 19th in Boston. Boston is 3,000 miles each way and due to the nature of Noah’s medical procedures they don’t want him flying prior to heart cath and heart procedures. This leaves them with the task of renting an RV and or borrowing one and all the expenses from this we estimate will cost $8,000-$10,000 dollars. This is for gas, RV camp fees and all expenses for a 3 to 4 week stay in Boston. If a surgery can be done, then this is the average time we may need to stay in Boston.
Boston Children’s might be his only chance, a fighting chance for Noah to live a life he deserves.
