The Colin Scheetz Family Foundation


Colin Scheetz was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, a congenital heart defect.  He
fought every day for 14 years. He received a heart transplant on October 18th at the Cleveland
Clinic, but succumbed to complications and passed away on December 11th, 2017.

In his short life, Colin had 7 open heart operations, over 30 cardiac catheterizations, and 100's
of medical procedures. In the last 60 days of his life, he had 9 operations.

Colin never complained and always had a smile on his face.  He touched the lives of everyone
he met. He was the definition of a warrior and fought the bravest battle against his heart defect.
Our hero will never be forgotten, and his legacy will continue through this
