Doctors told Megan and A.J. DeLaGarza that a congenital heart defect would require their first child to have major surgery as soon as he was born. The young family’s courage inspired support and warmth from across an entire league.
Such a tragedy. No parents should have to see their own children die, especially before they get to experience the beauty of life. Nothing can make up for the death of a young child but to see how the MLS community responds to this tragedy warms the heart. This exemplifies the beauty of soccer in the truest sense.
