what is Third Valve mean?

Andrew's third son Jack has heart like no one else.

There’s a little guy called Jack.  He’s the reason we started this whole thing.

In 2013, Jack was born with a complex heart disease.  During an intense surgery to to fix his broken heart, the surgeon created a brand new, a third, valve.  See where I’m going with this? Bad new though, shortly after his surgery he developed a new and potentially deadly disease called Pulmonary Vein Stenosis. 

 

Hospice came.  We were crushed that our brave little fighter with the extra valve was fading so quickly.

Don’t worry!  There’s a happy ending to this story.  We find a hospital in Boston who are the boss at treating heart diseases in kids.  We moved from California to Boston in a race against the ravages of his disease.  Boston Children’s Hospital worked their magic on Jack.  It was a long and terrifying road but we held onto hope.  In the throws of all of this, we needed a serious career change.  We needed a job that allowed for days (read: weeks) off to be with Jack in the hospital.  So we made one.  In 2014, Third Valve Creative was born.  We opened our own business, because, why not do something super risky in the middle of the most challenging time of our lives?  But, as I told you, hold fast because there’s a happy ending.

 

That was six years ago, and now Jack is strong.  He is strong and we are back.  We are back and we are ready to do some incredible videos on the West Coast (Best Coast).
