Second-grader starts fundraiser with half of a heart [Video]

with one comment

Second-grader Mathew Chase has personality for miles.  While he may not be able to run down the road of life, He’s not letting a little problem keep him from reaching big goals.

“I really want kids to live. I don’t want them to die or suffer from any kind of heart surgeries.”

Mathew was born with only half of his heart, the right side.  It’s a condition known as hypo plastic heart.

Doctors had to paralyze him for the first five days of his life waiting to perform surgery to reroute veins and arteries so he could live.  Two more surgeries later, Mathew wants to make sure other children have the same chance at survival.
