“My son Jake attended the free heart screening event in August hosted by UC Davis Children’s Hospital, Project ADAM Sacramento and the Kyle J. Taylor Foundation. He was diagnosed at the event by echocardiogram with a bicuspid aortic valve.

This is a congenital heart condition that we never knew about so now our family will be screened. Jake is seeing a pediatric cardiologist and will need a replacement valve at some point.

My son would never have met the clinical guidelines to warrant an echocardiogram! I can’t say enough about how much this screening has meant to us! Thank you to UC Davis, Project ADAM and Kyle J. Taylor Foundation for hosting this event and potentially saving my son’s life.”
