Thank you for helping kids with special hearts!
When you do an American Heart Association event, you are helping kids with special hearts kids like these!
My name is Madison, sometimes people call me Maddie. I was 11 years old when they found out I had a heart condition. I was scared to get surgery, but it was not as bad as I thought. I am better now and I feel great.
When I was just a few hours old, I stopped breathing and I had some big stuff wrong with my heart. I had my first open heart surgery when I was 37 hours old.
When I would run, jump or play sports, my heart would beat very fast and my chest would hurt. Two nice surgeons fixed my heart so now I can run, jump and play sports without pain. I am very happy that my heart and its tunnels are fixed.
I enjoy living on the farm, out in the country. It is peaceful and I have lots of animals. I have two older brothers. I had to have open heart surgery when I was 3 months old.
I'm the oldest of 5 kids, love Legos, reading and playing basketball with my friends. When I was born I immediately turned blue. At 6 days old I had open heart surgery to fix my heart.
When Kendra was 15 months old, she got sick with a high fever and was diagnosed with Kawasaki Disease. Without treatment, about 25% of children develop heart disease. Luckily Kendra was treated early and had no significant damage to her heart.
I have a rare heart condition named Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return. I was only two weeks old when they diagnosed me. The doctors performed a surgery in order to help my heart function correctly.
