Ben was diagnosed with hypoplastic left heart syndrome before he was born – and he was just 3 days old when cardiothoracic surgeon Stephanie Fuller, MD, performed the first of the three open heart surgeries he would need to survive. Ben is now a funny, feisty 6-year-old who loves climbing trees and playing with Legos. “People tell us, ‘If we didn't know that he had a heart condition, we would never believe it,’” says his mom, Ellen.
