Before Ian ever played, he'd already made a comeback
Ian was born with a heart that was not fully formed. It was a serious condition that affects blood flow, but it can be treated through a series of corrective surgeries. Step-by-step, year-by-year, the specialists at Children's National rebuilt his heart to function normally and gave him all the energy he'll ever need. Now 10 years old, his days of surgery are past and dreams of knocking it out of the park are well within reach.
