A Stroke of inspiration; A heart of hope
Like all first-time parents, Melissa and Nick Hadfield were eagerly anticipating the birth of their son in 2008. Upon Brady’s birth however, they learned that he had suffered a stroke in-utero due to a rare blood disorder. Their lives changed in an instant and they began the journey of helping Brady recover from his stroke and overcome the disabilities it had caused. Three years later, lightning struck the Hadfield family twice when their second child Madalynn was born with multiple congenital heart defects. Learn more about the Hadfield family and how you can help the American Heart Association continue to advance treatments for heart and stroke patients of all ages.
