FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – The rhythm of your heart... most people take it for granted, but for three local children, it's an everyday battle.
Friday night at the Annual Heart Ball money was raised for research and to help the American Heart Association's community programs.
Eight year old Aiden and 15 year old Brady spoke about their struggles with heart defects and how they're hopeful that someday technology will advance so they can grow to become adults.
10 year old Madison has made it her mission to educate others about heart disease because two of her grandfathers died of heart attacks.
Stephanie Eastom, Aiden's Mom says, “As he grows his condition could worsen and he could need a micro-valve repair or replacement so we just hope that he doesn't. We pray that someday he'll just keep going along and technology will just keep advancing.”
