Stacy and Jason Bingham of North Powder, Oregon have five wonderful children. Though the parents are healthy, their kids’ lives have been turned upside down by heart disease. Three of the Bingham children were diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy, which causes the heart muscle to be enlarged and stretched, resulting in a heart too weak to pump efficiently. In addition, their two other children have heart findings that are suspicious, but not definitive.

The result? Sierra, 13, and Lindsey, 9, have both had heart transplants at Packard Children’s. Gage, 4, has a pacemaker. Megan, 11, and Hunter, 6, are undergoing close observation.

“We have good friends throughout Packard Children’s. At times, it almost felt like we were raising our kids in a hospital setting," said Jason. “It’s amazing what doctors and medicine and the human body can do. There were times when it felt like going home was never going to happen, and that the wait for Lindsey’s transplant would drag on forever. But all the kids are doing well right now, and we thank everyone for their support.”
