Mark's Heart Journey

Mark Morris, a 20-year-old from Buffalo, New York, was born with Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. In 2012, Mark traveled to Nationwide Children's Hospital because our Adolescent and Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) Program offered something he couldn't find anywhere else. A plan to fix his heart and avoid multiple open heart surgeries over the span of his life.

Join Mark and his family for three life-changing days at Nationwide Children's Hospital. Be there as Mark undergoes testing and treatment, and makes decisions with the help of our ACHD team.
