More Info

Vanessa has a condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. Usually, surgery is done on babies who go on to adulthood and live, active, healthy lives. Without surgery, death usually occurs by the time the person reaches age 20. Vanessa is now 17 and at a critical junction where surgery can still be done before it is too late and irreversible changes occur. We have collaborated with Joe DiMaggio Hospital who reviewed her case and believe that she has a great prognosis if done now. Please help up raise funds to transport her to Florida and have this life-saving procedure done as soon as possible as she can barely walk anymore, turning blue with minimal activity.

Thank you so much for your help and support.
