We donated this painting to help a family cover medical expenses for their little baby boy named Owen. Owen has Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.
Hypoplastic left heart syndrome is a complex and rare heart defect present at birth (congenital). In hypoplastic left heart syndrome, the left side of the heart is critically underdeveloped.
If your baby is born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, the left side of the heart can't effectively pump blood to the body, so the right side of the heart must pump blood both to the lungs and to the rest of the body.
Medication to prevent closure of the connection (ductus arteriosus) between the right and left sides, followed by either surgery or a heart transplant, is necessary to treat hypoplastic left heart syndrome. "
A lot of incredibly talented people have come together to help him and their family out. If you'd like to see more awesome items, check out the online auction and place your bid.
