Madilyn, 1 year-old from Corpus Christi, Texas

During a fetal echocardiogram, Madilyn’s mom found out she had a severe heart defect including holes between her upper and lower chambers. When she was 2-weeks-old, cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Mark Morales performed open heart surgery to repair the holes. Although there are additional procedures in her future, she currently enjoys spending time with her big sister.
