Dean's Heart Story

By: Theresa L. Bohannan

“He inspires us as a family,” that’s how Theresa Bohannan describes her son, Dean. Dean was born with double inlet left ventricle and has undergone three surgeries since birth. “While Dean has gone through so much in his life, he has so much energy and love for life! It is hard to keep up with Dean on most days. Like many 6-year-olds, he loves riding his bike, playing with friends and his older brother, and he has become quite the artist. Dean has thrived and we are thankful for his team of doctors that have treated him since birth.”
