Lea Michelle: An angel in heaven

On July 12th, 2014 a little angel was born: Lea Michelle Ortega. Lea was born with  cleft lip, missing pallet and was also born with a bad heart. Only a couple weeks after she was born she had open heart surgery. She had 100% loss of hearing and was never able to walk normal nor eat like other children. Her Mom and Dad spent most of their time taking her to the hospital where she spent most of her days fighting for her life. Last Saturday  July 22nd, 2017 only a few days after her third birthday, Lea spend her last day at the hospital. Doctors said her heart was getting too big and would be needing a heart transplant which she didn't get to. With other serious complications she had, she was growing too weak and she could not fight anymore. Lea's parents have been struggling most of their lives financially and would like to ask for any of your help to support them through this tough and sad moment. All donations would go to her parents to help them with funeral costs and arrangements. We will be very grateful for your donations.
