Matthew’s Journey to Get a New Heart!

Matthew Haynes is an 18-year-old son, brother, grandson, and uncle who was diagnosed with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) at birth. Matthew had survived four open heart surgeries by the time he was two years old, and many hospitalizations and heart catheterizations throughout his 18 years. Despite the trials with his health, Matthew is an energetic, kind, courageous, smart, and loving young man. He is going to be a senior this upcoming school year and wants nothing more than to live the life every 18-year-old should be living.
