Let's Find a Cure
Emily was born on March 4, 1993 with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Her first surgery was at just 38 hours old. Over the next eight years, she endured eight more surgeries, including the implantation of a pacemaker, and too many cardiac catheters to count.
Through it all Emily kept her spirit. She loved Winnie the Pooh, The Wizard of Oz, and chips and dip. She found joy in almost everything around her.
When she was eight, it was determined that she needed a heart transplant. Unfortunately, a heart didn't come in time and Emily passed away surrounded by family on December 13, 2001.
