Medical Fund For Presley Walker

Our Sweet and Sassy Presley Mae is scheduled to have open heart surgery on 11/3/2015 at Arkansas Childrens Hospital . She will get to tour ACH and meet the ICU nurses the day before. 

Presley has a rare heart defect . She has a large ASD ( Atrial Septial Defect) other wise known as a hole in the upper chambers of the heart. Along with one of her 4 pulmonary veins emptying into the the superior vena cava artery instead of the left atrium.
 This defect is one that has to be fixed by creating a patch to reroute blood back to the correct part of her heart and repairing the hole. She is expected to stay in CVICU for 72hrs then another 2-3 days after. 

We were told at the age of 3mo that Presley had a heart murmur . We went for 3 different echocardiograms , all told us she had mild Pulomary Stenoisis . So mild that her Cardiologist released back to PCP for care and followup when he retired . It wasn't until her 4yr old checkup that her PCP listened and new something wasn't right. She was misdiagnosed for 4 yrs . Which is not uncommon but still hard to hear . 

We are a normal working class family with 4 children . Brooklyn is our oldest she is 11 . Peyton is 8 , Presley is 4 and our youngest is Avery ( AK ) she is 2. I am a Pediatric Nurse and the Pediatric Clinic in Cabot Arkansas . Her dad is a estimator with a restoration company in Conway Arkansas . We have private insurance which will pay 80% of her surgery . This will leave us paying our 20% .


As a parent you never want to here your child needs any kind of surgery. The thought of my baby girl having open heart surgery is terrifying. 

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers .
