Update on Mini Darth Vadar
Thu, 02-21-2013 - 4:16pm

I love reading updates on the little boy who played the mini Darth Vadar in a Super Bowl ad two years ago: 

It's been seven months since Max's last surgery -- an open heart pulmonary valve replacement -- and he has been cleared for all activities by his doctors. He's back campaigning for the hospital, and he's learned to snowboard and also plays Little League Baseball. Soon he'll even return to his role on the CBS soap "The Young and the Restless."

In his own words, "I'm back to being me."

Read the rest of his update at: http://www.cnn.com/2013/02/01/living/iyw-mini-darth-vader/index.html?iref=obinsite

He's got such a great attitude and does a lot for CHD awareness.  The article said that his hero is snowboarder Shaun White, who has the same heart defect.  Who is your heart hero?
