My son can offer hope for others with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome

Robert and Dakota DunwiddieMarch 15 is the 4-year anniversary of my son's RF ablation surgery performed by Dr. John Clark to fix his congenital WPW (Wolff–Parkinson–White syndrome).

My son, Dakota Dunwiddie, was diagnosed when he was 1 month old. He is now 16 and consistently has a grade point average of 4.0, or close to it. He is very considerate of others and has excelled in football at the storied Massillon Tiger football program.

I've included a few links that I think would interest Dr. Clark and inspire others that WPW doesn't have to be so scary. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
