Asher’s Story

Categories: Blog,News,Patient Stories

Among those presenting at the March 14 awareness month briefing were Jennifer and James DeBouver, recent Army veterans who shared the heart wrenching story of their infant son.  Both parents now work for the Department of Labor.  When Jennifer was 26 weeks pregnant with Asher James, doctors discovered that he had a heart condition called Aortic Stenosis and that a fetal intervention procedure was needed to give him the chance to be born.  Asher’s parents were told that even the procedure could prove too much for the fetus to survive, but it was his only chance. Asher survived the surgery, but then blood clots changed everything. Watch their presentation here.
