Cal was born on April 30, 2022, and defied the odds from his first day of life. He was born with a rare heart defect, and courageously endured two open heart surgeries before he was a month old. His family, friends, and cardiac team were amazed by his strength and celebrated with him when he began his exciting life beyond the hospital doors.
He smiled and laughed, bounced and kicked, and loved to splash and sing at bathtime. He traveled and camped with his parents, went swimming with his cousins, and made instant friends with all who met him.
Cal’s survival was a miracle and his life is a gift. Above all else, he will be remembered as a happy little boy who was blessed with the strength of giants, and has now made a triumphant journey home.
Sarah and Matthew are deeply moved by the outpouring of love they’ve received from their family and friends. They’re also grateful for the exceptional doctors and nurses at Primary Children’s Hospital who cared for Cal.
Cal passed away October 29, 2022 in the arms of his parents.
