Erick George Brown 1996-2008 – To the doctors, he was their miracle child……….Born with six different heart defects and no spleen, he beat all odds. At 18 days old, exciting news showed a spleen had developed. Now with multiple surgeries ahead of us, anxiety was high. At six weeks old surgery was attempted, but unsuccessful. It was bittersweet, no more surgeries, because the doctors determined that the only surgery for Erick would be a heart and lung transplant.
Although he was a child with heart issues, clearly his heart was in the right place–early on, Erick showed he had a heart full of love. Winning awards for Christian character, he took a special interest in tutoring and feeding hungry children. His desire to serve and respect others is contagious, even now. In honor of his life, this foundation has been established in his memory.
