Derek and Heather Carr proudly support Valley Children’s Healthcare through their own very personal connection. Hours after their son, Dallas, was born in 2013, he was rushed into emergency surgery at Valley Children’s Hospital. Dallas was born with intestinal malrotation, a potentially life-threatening congenital anomaly that can cut off blood supply to the intestinal tract. Dallas underwent two more surgeries and spent 23 days in Valley Children’s Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the highest level of care available for neonates and infants between the Bay Area and Los Angeles. You can become a DC4KIDS Touchdown Challenge member.
