Description

What is Team Tagg?
When our son Taggert was born in 2009 we had no idea the challenges we would soon face. All through Amy’s pregnancy everything seemed normal. Nothing presented in utero to indicate any issues. However two hours after birth we were presented with news that no parents ever want to hear. Taggert was born with Tetralogy of Fallot, a heart defect, and we would later find out he also suffered from tracheal stenosis and bronchial and tracheal malacia. It was not until Tagg was 7 that we were told he fell on the Autism spectrum.

As overwhelming as all of this was to process we quickly realized one thing…we were not alone. Family, friends, and medical staff quickly created a support system that cannot be put into words. Shortly after Taggert was born; Team Tagg was born as well.

On many occasions Amy, myself, Emery and Taggert have been incredulous by the gracious support and generosity by members of Team Tagg. It is this reason that we want to try and give back. There are many other families dealing with issues like ours. Our goal is to do what we can to let them know they too are not alone.
