Logan and his parents, Michael and Lauren Miceli
Logan was born in March 2013 with a congenital heart condition known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). After two difficult yet successful open-heart surgeries at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Logan was living his life as a silly, joyful, bright two year old and was headed for pre-school.
On January 30, 2016, we were presented with the news that Logan had been diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukemia. This diagnosis triggered an immediate regimen of hospitalized chemotherapy treatments at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
On March 2, 2016, our sweet Logan, who would have turned 3 on March 26, entered eternal life while resting in the arms of his parents.
During their time spent in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Johns Hopkins, we were moved by the medical struggles of others. As medical expenses soar, many parents with children receiving treatment in the PICU struggle with the difficult decision to continue to work or stay at the bedside of their sick child.
These devastating circumstances often leave many children without a family member by their side during treatment. Logan's Never Be Alone Foundation aims to help ease the financial suffering of families, so that parents may remain with their child during treatment at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Although Logan is no longer with us, his incredible spirit lives on. Our Logan was truly a remarkable child. We are grateful for every breath Logan has drawn and for his profoundly positive contribution to his family and all who know of him through his courage and will.
