Olivia may only be six but she doesn’t let anything hold her back. She runs, swims, climbs and does gymnastics. You’d never know that she was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a condition where the left side of her heart does not function properly. Olivia had her first open heart surgery when she was six days old, and another at one month old. Her third and most recent surgery happened when she was three and she had to spend a month in the hospital due to complications. Though she will need to return to her hospital for annual checkups, Olivia’s condition is stable. She has memories of being in the hospital but knows she conquered her illness. Olivia specifically remembers loving the chicken soup she ate while she was there and has fond memories of the hospital play areas. When you ask her what she wants to be when she grows up, Olivia is determined that she will be a doctor, so she can help others who are sick. Community donations through Children’s Miracle Network allows hospitals to be at the forefront of research and discovery, so kids with complex conditions like Olivia get the best treatment possible.
