When Extra Life Becomes Personal

After teaming up with his wife to raise money for the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin for many years through Extra Life, Nathan and his wife were ecstatic to find out they were expecting their first child this year. Nearly six months into the pregnancy, they learned their daughter has a rare congenital heart defect.

Knowing that their daughter will have to undergo three open heart surgeries before she turns 4, raising money through Extra Life has now become a more personal experience for them. 

Funds raised through Extra Life help local hospitals provide treatment, new equipment, research, patient programs and more to help families like Nathan. You can help support his fundraising efforts by donating at his Extra Life fundraising page.
