The little Jack Stevens had to fight from his life from the first breadth on. He was born with a heart disorder - his life hung by a silk thread. Even the doctors were pushed to the limits of their abilities. Jacks first moments were a literal tightrope act between life and death.

Jack suffers from HLHS, a maldevelopment of the heart where the left ventricle does not fully develop, halting it from performing its life-sustaining function.

In his first week in this world, Jack had already undergone open heart surgery 4 times. Each time the doctors fought desperately for his life.

After the last procedure (the believe or or not NINTH), at the tender age of almost one, Jack fell into a coma and had to be reanimated. No one knew how much strength the little bugger still had.

But against the fears of the doctors and the prognoses, Jack recovered slowly, but steadily by fighting as hard as he could back to life. After 15 months in the hospital, his parents could take him home for the first time.

The elation that all felt was indescribable. Jack blossomed right up as he finally was able to enter the land of the living.

It was an internal salvation for his parents. Parents that had desperately worried for their son for months, spending uncounted nights in the hospital to be by his side.

His father recounts, with tears of joy in his eyes, “He can almost walk and babbles to himself the whole day. Jack is such a special kid and he is the joy of our life.”
