Dallas Cowboy quarterback, Brandon Weeden and his wife, Melanie, have witnessed firsthand the challenges for Oklahoma's children in need of cardiac care through their friendship with the family of six-year old Gavin. Despite the tremendous resources available at The Children's Hospital, many young cardiac patients like Gavin and their families have to leave the state to receive necessary medical procedures. Although it is impossible to eliminate the need for such services, the Weedens believe it is possible to improve access to these services. With this in mind, the Weedens are raising funds to endow a chair in pediatric cardiac surgery. This endowment will create research and financial resources that will help Children's Hospital build up an even more prestigious program. Through personal resources and fundraising efforts, the Weedens hope to make this dream a reality in the very near future.
The Weedens cordially invite you to Swing from the Heart as they host the third annual Swing from the Heart Annual Golf Challenge to be hosted at the prestigious Oak Tree National in Edmond, Oklahoma on Thursday, June 25, 2015!
