Art That Makes a Difference was inspired by the experience of life-long Kansas City residents, Joyce and Jack Hayhow.

In 1977, the Hayhow's son, Brian, was born with a heart defect called aortic stenosis. Without immediate surgery, Brian would die. Children's Mercy Hospital assembled an open-heart surgery team in the middle of the night to perform a life-saving surgery. Today Brian is a husband, father, valued member of the Kansas City business community and the Chairman of Children's Mercy Hospital Ambassadors.
