Kyle's Story

Kyle

Nov. 4, 1997: Dr. Kawabori of Seattle Children's Hospital gives a "thumbs up" to a healthy heart!

On June 17, 1997 Kyle Walmsley (son of Lee and Rhonda Walmsley, Managing Members of FastbackStack, LLC) was born with Ventrical Septal Defect (VSD). VSD is a defect where there is a hole in the two lower chambers of the heart. Following his birth, Kyle was transferred to Children's Hospital in Seattle, Washington where he received careful monitoring while he was placed on a powerful medication, Digoxin.

Kyle's hole in his heart was rather large and it was initially thought that Kyle would need heart surgery when he reached 12 months of age. The Digoxin, doctors said, would only minimize the size of the hole. It wouldn't close the hole. Since performing surgery on an infant was extremely risky, doctors recommended that Kyle reach the age of one before undergoing heart surgery.

Kyle remained at Children's hospital for four days following his birth and visited Seattle Children's Hospital numerous times during the next three months for various heart tests. At Kyle's three month checkup, tests confirmed something extraordinary. The hole in Kyle's heart had closed on it's own. Kyle would not need heart surgery after all.

Today, Kyle is a healthy 13 year old. Children's Hospital remains close to all of the Walmsley's hearts (pun intended) for the care and support they provided during Kyle's formative days.


Support Children's Hospital

Unfortunately, there are millions of children that have physical and developmental needs that do not heal in a short period of time. Some children face lifelong battles and many surgeries that require incredible strength and perseverance from both the child and the child's family. Children's Hospitals provide exceptional patient care and state-of-the art technology that help our youngest generation to be happy and healthy.

Please consider supporting a Children's Hospital near you. After all, children are the ones that will carry on the Mustang legacy.


Support Local Events

There are some great local automotive events that benefit the Seattle Children's Hospital uncompensated healthcare fund. This fund allows the hospital to provide medical care to patients regardless of their ability to pay and ensures that no families' child will be turned away in times of need.
