“Happy Holidays!” From Ethan, Robyn & Me

By Adam Pick on December 24, 2012

On Friday, I celebrated my 7th anniversary from heart valve surgery.

The day was filled with many happy emotions. In particular, the emotion of thankfulness was present. I am so incredibly thankful for the medical miracle that has extended my life and provided me the opportunity to marry Robyn and bring Ethan, our son, into this world.

In addition, I am beyond thankful for the patients, family members and friends who visit this website. Thanks to your help, your participation, your ideas, your caring thoughts, and your love, we have created a special resource that will help patients for years to come.
