Thankful Thursday: Meet Avery!

February is American Heart Month, and while we often think of cardiovascular problems as adult issues, about 1 in 100 babies is born with a heart defect each year. Avery was born with a congenital heart defect and needed open heart surgery when he was just 13 days old. His condition required heart surgery again at three months, then at age 2, and again this past August. Seeing Avery run around the indoor playground at Children’s Hospital of Georgia, you would never know it. Meet Avery’s parents and watch his story on WRDW-TV News 12/NBC 26.
