Logan was born with Right Atrial Isomerism/Heterotaxy Syndrome. Heterotaxy syndrome is a rare birth defect that involves the heart and other organs. The beginning of the word (hetero-) means “different” and the end (–taxy) means “arrangement.” There are different forms of heterotaxy. All usually involve heart defects, of varying type and severity. In heterotaxy syndrome, paired organs, such as the lungs or kidneys, are often mirror images of one another instead of having the unique characteristics of right and left that are normally present.
Only the right half of Logan’s heart formed and he has no left sided organs. Logan has had three open heart surgeries in his life so far and will need multiple more to live. His intestines are malrotated and he has no spleen.
Logan is thriving against all odds. He has hope in his genes.
