Jon is 2 years old and has Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (half a heart) and recently had his 3rd open heart surgery. Jon’s father is enlisted in the army and was deployed in Afghanistan for over 3 1/2 years which left Jon’s mother having to take care of Jon and his two sisters. The family has been experiencing financial strain and were unable to pay for medical co-pays. The Extra Step worked with the family and made these payments.
