Meet Carter: 2022 Family Advocacy Day Champion

Carter is participating in Speak Now for Kids Family Advocacy Day from June 12-14. Through this event, Carter and his family will discuss his health journey, Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital for Rehabilitation’s role in providing him with necessary health care services, and why the public and our elected officials must invest in the future of patients like Carter.

Carter was diagnosed with congenital heart disease when he was just three days old and spent time in the NICU at Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital. He had critical aortic stenosis and blood was not flowing properly from his heart.
