Aja was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and Mitral and Aortic Atresia. She has undergone two open heart surgeries and most recently had a Gtube (feeding tube) placed, hernia repaired and gall bladder removed. Congenital Heart Defects (CHD's) are far more common than we once thought. 1 in 100 babies are born with a CHD. Aja still has one more open heart surgery ahead of her, will need life-long monitoring and likely life-long medications. In just 13 short months our lives have greatly changed, we have learned a vast amount of information about Aja's heart, learned more medical terminology than I thought possible and have truly felt Gods presence! God gave us our beautiful miracle and we are so blessed to have her! We have been touched by all of our family and friends support!
Help-A-Heart has been a blessing to our family. They provide lunches on surgery days, financial support during lengthy hospital stays and most of all emotional support. Please join Aja's Avengers October 23rd to help raise awareness for CHD's and raise money to continue supporting this wonderful, local organization!
