Addison was born with several critical heart defects requiring open heart surgery at just 7 days old. Addison has L-TGA, PA, VSD and left and right branch pulmonary stenosis. At 9 months old Addison had another OHS, the senning and rastelli procedure and a pacemaker placed at 10 months old. At 18 months old we had to upgrade her pacemaker in hopes to bring back her heart function. At 2 yrs old Addison had another OHS to repair a baffle from her second OHS. Even after all of this her heart still is not functioning and she will eventually need a heart transplant. Even after going through all of this, Addison is so happy and carefree. You would never be able to tell just looking at her. She‘s our hero and idol. Research and funding is critical for our heart warriors. Every little advancement can help our warriors lead a normal life as much as they can and increase their life expectancy even further!
