Help Steve Help: Monique Esparza

Hi, everybody! Say hello to our new friends and family nominee: Monique Esparza

Monique Esparza is a loving mother of seven, three of which are currently battling severe health conditions. 

Despite her situation, Monique finds the time to help run  LA HEART MOMS, a support group for mothers of children with heart conditions. She's a passionate advocate for Moms who are facing similar situations and is always thinking of ways to brighten their day. 


Maceo, age 12, has undergone 13 surgeries, including six open-heart surgeries, as a result of being born with tricuspid atresia, a rare heart condition in which the tricuspid valve doesn’t develop in the womb. The defect blocks proper blood flow to the lungs and caused the right side of Maceo’s heart to be severely underdeveloped. The tricuspid valve can’t be replaced, so patients undergo a series of surgeries to reroute blood flow through the body There's no known cure for his conditions and treatment is costly. 

Lucas, age 5, is currently in recovery from a brain tumor. 

Savannah, age 7, has been in and out of hospitals due to chronic lung issues. 

In addition to hospital and travel expenses, the Esparza family was recently forced to relocate their home, facing moving expenses as well.
