Jack's Story

At only a year old, Jack Henry began having episodes where he would stop breathing, turn blue, and his heart would stop beating, and the diagnosis was that Jack Henry needed a pacemaker. The team of experts at the Children’s Heart Center surgically embedded a pacemaker that would restart Jack Henry’s heart when his blood pressure dropped to a certain rate.

Today Jack Henry is a happy, healthy little boy and can do almost anything a normal 5-year-old can do. Jack Henry loves playing baseball. He also loves to dress up like a ninja and play fight with his big sister Hailey.
