Zaydrian Dillard had open heart surgery and received a mechanical heart valve at 1 month old. Pediatric cardiothoracic surgeon Gary Raff performed the surgery and Zaydrian is now happy and healthy!

“Zaydrian was loved at the hospital. All the nurses loved being able to watch over him at times dad and I weren’t there. The nurses called him their “little cuddle man” said Jazmin Wilder, Zaydrian’s mother.
