Heart of Ethan

BabyEthan4Heart of Ethan is a project of Positive Perspective Mentors & Educational Services inspired by an article written in the Houston Forward Times on Wednesday, December 12, 2012 entitled “All I Want For Christmas is A New Heart” and a follow-up article on Wednesday, December 19, 2012 entitled “Christmas Miracle: Baby Ethan Gets His Heart!”
Executive Director, Willie A. Taylor, states that “Even though Ethan has received his heart transplant, his family has many financial and emotional needs to cope with this unforeseen life changing incident. We are determined not to let this young family fall through the cracks and face this situation alone.” Ethan will require continuous comprehensive medical treatment for the rest of his life. Our goals are to help alleviate some of the financial burden for Ethan’s family and to educate the community about children’s chronic healthcare illnesses.
