Simply Dashy Photography is participating in the "2009 East Bay Start! Heart Walk".
The event will take place on Sunday, September 20, 2009 at the Danville Livery and Mercantile.

For additional details and donation information please click on our Heart Walk Team Website.
We are committed to walk for this organization for Koen and all the heart survivors in our family.

Thank you in advance and may you be blessed for your support and kindness!

Just a little background...our son, Koen, was born with a heart condition called Pulmonary Valve Stenosis. He had two heart procedures done when he was an infant: the first one at only 5 days old and the second procedure when he was 3 months old. We are all very grateful that both heart procedures were a success. Although Koen's heart condition is not exactly 100% normal like ours, he remains to be a very healthy boy who could be as active and play any sports any person with a normal heart can do. Thanks to all the talented and skillful doctors at UCSF and Kaiser Permanente!

This was Koen back in 2002 at the ICU in Kaiser Permanente in Hayward, CA.

2002: Koen wearing an oxygen monitor on his foot.
You can see his ID bracelet too!

2009: this is our Koen now! =)


  1. Wow! that's awesome! I should get you in contact with a good friend of mine whose son was born with a heart defect as well (for the life of me, I can't remember what it's called!)... She and her family are really involved with the AHA! Let me know if you want her contact info or I can hook you guys up through Facebook! :) Her son is now almost 12 years old (I think).
