Brittany was born July 2, 2009 at the children’s hospital of Philadelphia. She is a twin but unfortunatly her twin sister passed away at one month old due to a congenital heart defect. Brittany was diagnosed with a subaortic membrane at 6 months old and had her first open heart surgery at 18 months old. It only took about 2 1/2 years for the membrane to grow back enough to need removed for a second time. Brittany had her second open heart surgery a week after her 4th birthday and had a lot of complications following surgery.
For this upcoming surgery Brittany will again need a subaortic membrane removed as well as the possibility of her aortic valve needing repaired or replaced. There is also a good possibility she will require a pacemaker after this surgery.
Her family will need assistance with a lot of expenses and will also have a loss of income while Brittany is in the hospital and during some of the recovery time.
