Ellie Bowman is a sweet 4-year-old who was born with a genetic deletion called 22q11.2. This caused severe heart defects, a cleft palate, adrenal insufficiency, and several other health problems. She has had 3 heart surgeries and spent much of her life in and out the hospital. Unfortunately, Ellie has developed severe congestive heart failure and pulmonary hypertension with a terminal prognosis.  She needs a heart and double lung transplant to save her life! Ellie and her family would truly appreciate any donations to help offset the transplant costs ❤️

We are happy to update that Ellie received a heart and double lung transplant on Sunday, September 23rd!!! The transplant came just in time, as her heart failure had severely worsened in the weeks prior. This was nothing short of a miracle, and we are overcome with gratitude. We still have a long recovery ahead, but so far Ellie is recovering well ❤️❤️

Ellie’s heart/lung transplant testing is almost complete! We are waiting on pins and needles to find out if she will be a candidate. In the past, kids with Ellie’s condition have not been considered transplant candidates because of the complex nature of her anatomy + genetic condition. We are grateful that St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Dr. Eghtesady are even considering taking on such a high risk surgery. It is our only hope to save Ellie’s life, even if it is a long shot.
Please continue to share our story!!! We are going to need all the love, support, and prayers we can get, whether we end up getting on the transplant list or going home with hospice.
