This little lady has a condition called Ventricular Septal Defect. Basically she was born with a hole in her heart. She is only 8 months old and already has changes to her heart do to increased pressure. She needed surgery to close the hole or she would have gone into congestive heart failure. The University of Minnesota was the only place in the state that has the ability to do this procedure.
Her procedure cost $4500.
She is currently in recovery for the next couple months and will be adopted out after that.
