According to the Center for Disease Control, about 960 children in the United States are born yearly with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Little Jack Palmer happens to be one of them, but his story is phenomenal.
When Chuck and Tiffany Palmer learned they were expecting a boy, they were elated. However, their hopes were dashed when, at 20 weeks, the fetus was diagnosed with a hypoplastic left heart disorder. This anomaly is marked in newborns by a weak pulse, difficulty in breathing, and bluish looks. Medical experts declared that the child would not make it to full term.
