PLEASE DONATE to help support Annabelle Moon and the family as they plan for a upcoming heart surgery to take place at Boston Children's Hospital.

All of the funds donated will be put to all of Annabelle's Medical cost and co-pays which include: 
Special Vaccinations, Vitamins, Syringes, Medications, Medical Equipment, Phsycial Medical Theraphy Equipment, Supplies and Tools for her to develope her muscles to make her as strong as possible to give her body a fighting chance to make it thru the procedures. 

She is a warrior, and ready to spread her light and love with the world!

Update: 12/15/17 We have consulted with Boston Children’s Hospital they believe they can attempt a Bi-Ventricle repair which is an actual fix of Annabelle’s Heart. They want to start the process in April 2018 they will have to do surgery in 2 stages. We are planning to be in Boston for about 4 weeks to give time Annabelle to heal.

Update: 6/13/2017 March 17th 2016 Annabelle had her second heart surgery a Bidirectional Glenn Shunt there were some compilations and she ended up requiring within the same week 3 other surgeries. Currently Annabelle has been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and on Oxygen and a Pulse Oximiter which needs monitoring 24/7. She is on a series of medication for her Blood Clotting and lung / heart fluid retention. She has pulmonary hypertension and is mostly in good spirits most of the time.

Annabelle Moon was born in October 2016 in Pasadena, CA. Diagnosed at birth with a congenital heart condition and soon rushed From Huntington Hospital to Children's Hospital Los Angeles where doctors told her mother Crislyn Sand that Annabelle was born with Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome) and a congenital heart defect called Unbalanced Complete Atrioventricular Septal Defect (AVSD), with Hypoplastic Right Ventricle, with Moderate AV Valve Insufficiency.

At only 2 days old; Doctors told her mother that there was no cure for Annabelle's condition and she would eventually show signs of congestive heart failure and pass away, they suspected that it would be within the year.The next day staff put their years of experience and knowledge together and offered Annabelle Moon hope to preserve her arteries and valves so they could potentially do surgeries on her in the future to help extend her life. A plan was formed. Annabelle Moon would require three heart surgeries to give her a fighting chance to love, live and grow.

On October 18, 2016 only a few weeks old: Annabelle underwent the first surgery called a Pulmonary artery Band which was to preserve her arteries and lungs so she could have her second surgery and give her body time to grow.

On our following Facebook page you can see what equipment we use daily to educate and strengthening her to give her the best life possible.

Annabelle's Boston surgery scheduled for April has been postponed because our insurance CCS denied the request for surgery. So there is not health insurance coverage for her to even have surgery. We are disappointed because we have been waiting 4 months to make this journey and now we have to wait even longer as we appeal their decision.
We are grateful for all the support she has received from family, friends, and acquaintances.
Good news is - She is considered stable right now with her heart condition so her cardiologist is not worried if we have to wait for insurance to be approved.
We just have to take things in steps, and know we have options for her and god willing she will be stable long enough so we can wait and get more time enjoying her, educating her, watching her grow into the wonderful happy little toddler that she is now.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
1/5/2018 Boston called and has confirmed our dates for surgery in the first week of April. We talked to our Cardiologist and they do not recommend Annabelle should fly because of her pulmonary hypertension so it looks like we will have to be traveling via Car from Los Angeles to Boston the last week of March.
I guess we can think of it as a family road trip before spending all the time focused on Annabelle's healing.
We just continue to pray that love and god will guide us to make the best decisions for her health.
