Are you ready for some inspiration? We've got just that…

By Suzanne R. Ferguson, @suzannerferguson

In case you missed the inspiring piece that aired on Sunday featuring the Carolina Panthers' Greg Olsen on the FOX Sports pregame show, we wanted to share the links below. Olsen’s son, TJ, has hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and recently had his fourth surgery at only two years of age -- three open heart surgeries and one surgery to implant a pacemaker. He is now home after staying more than a month in the hospital. The inspirational story touches not only on the Olsen family's struggle but also their determination to fight HLHS head on.

TJ, the Todd and Karen Wanek Family Program for HLHS is rooting for you!
