Caden and Malachi

Your gifts to Friends help patients like Caden and his older brother Malachi of Crystal Springs. When Caden was born with a congenital heart defect requiring open heart surgery, doctors also diagnosed him with a chromosome disorder. Mom asked if Malachi should be checked and doctors found a previously undetected heart murmer. Three weeks later, doctors implanted a metal device to cover the hole in his heart. Both boys are doing well–Caden is active and adventuresome and Malachi keeps busy playing in his school band, serving on the Mayor’s Youth Council and preaching at his church.
