This next Art Heart is for Charlie, who was diagnosed with Truncus Arteriosus before she was born. Due to additional complications she was born a tiny 4 1/2 pounds.
Charlie's parents had 5 wonderful days with their daughter before her health declined and an emergency surgery had to be performed. She still needed surgery to correct the Truncus, which was pushed back another week. For 2 1/2 months her parents spent nearly every moment by their daughter's side as she fought for her life.
Unfortunately Charlie lost her battle with Truncus. In her parents letter, they expressed how loving her has changed their lives - in volunteering, sharing her story and raising awareness of congenital heart defect, they honor her memory. She has created purpose in their lives.
