Emma Heart Surgery ASD Closure

As parents, we have felt nothing short of admiration for Emma Victoria. For those of you that know her, you know of her ability to win you over in minutes. People of all ages respond to her, some due to her sweet personality, others due to her confidence and vivid personality. She is a natural-born leader, a people's person, with a cat-like personality, so beware she is melting you with kisses and charm to get something in return! She loves to swim, dance, sing, but specially eat candy, lots of candy, specially if coconut flavored.

We've implanted the seed of greatness in Emma since a very young age. Therefore, every time Emma wakes up, we ask her, For what does the world need you? And she responds, to do great things. A sense of purpose is growing inside of her, to walk the walk, to do things differently, to think of society as a whole and what she can contribute, to leave a legacy in the world.

Emma has a congenital heart disease, ASD. She is a healthy little girl for now, but if left untreated, she will have heart and lung complications in the future. She just turned 5 years old and the doctors believe it to be the recommended age for heart surgery, so they've scheduled it for this summer (early June).

From the total cost of the surgery of $131,000.00 at Boston Children's Hospital, $10,00.00 is left uncovered after deducting health insurance. We will appreciate whatever amount you feel in your heart to donate. It will be greatly appreciated. We assure you that she will pay it forward!
