The life expectancy of a child with congenital heart defects is growing. Advancements in medicine have allowed for this trend.
But imagine being born with a series of defects in 1988.
This is the story of Austin Rickard. A child born with a series of defects and a bleak prognosis on life. Unsure if he’d see his first birthday, Austin accomplished more in his life than ever imagined.
Austin’s story is told by his Mother, Lori.
