David Koning was born with hypoplastic left-heart syndrome. He said he was dead for six minutes as a toddler before being revived and he literally has half a heart. He also has cerebral palsy and suffers from seizures. Yet, he wants children to know that there is always hope. That?s the idea behind the event that Koning, 22, said he?s put together on Monday. The Laguna Beach High volleyball team manager has set up a ?Changing Children?s Lives? event at the Los Angeles Clippers game that day. The Clippers play the New Jersey Nets at 12:30 p.m., which happens to be Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Thanks to Koning?
