The term "bucket list" has become popular among adults wanting to experience adventures and extreme activities while they still can. A three year old boy with shrinking odds of a long life gives a simpler perspective to the term.
Little Draven Krohn was born with a heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. "The whole left side of his heart is underdeveloped and it doesn't pump blood," says Draven's Mom, Kyle Krohn. The condition requires a transplant; only procedures to get of rid antibodies that would reject a donor heart are not working so far.
"This would be where a miracle was needed," says Kyle Krohn. The prognosis is not good, so Draven's family has started a Facebook page called Draven's Bucket List. The list is things a lot of three years do, but for Draven are firsts. "Jus let him have fun, let him be a little boy, he deserves it."
His mother shares the story to raise awareness about families dealing with heart defects and to perhaps help others see the good in their own life. "If anything I want it to inspire people to stop and just take a minute and realize what you have," said Krohn.
