Local dad honors son, raises funds for heart defects

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - He had a short, but mighty life, and now his family is keeping his memory alive through an upcoming tournament and fundraiser that is helping to raise awareness of the number one birth defect in the United States.

Erik Kaye, from Hellertown, sat down with WFMZ's Eve Tannery to share the story of his son, Carson Mighty Kaye, along with Dr. Ruchi Gupta, a cardiologist with the Children's Heart Center of Northeast PA.

All of the proceeds from the upcoming Carson Kaye Memorial Tournament and Fundraiser benefit the Children's Heart Foundation.
