An amazing story was sent in from Ariel, who lives all the way in California! A friend of her's from Denver had contacted her and informed Ariel that one of her friend's daughters was admitted into a hospital near Ariel. This woman's daughter was "facing an uphill battle larger than life itself... (baby)Lucy's heart defects range in severity starting with Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome, Double Outlet Right Ventricle, Pulmonary Valve Stenosis, Ventricle Septal Defect, and lastly Transposition of the Great Arteries. She has had one major surgery and is scheduled for another" Ariel says in her email. Ariel and her four year old daughter made a quick shopping trip and picked up some things for the mommy and daughter. Keep in mind Ariel has never met this family, but her and her daughter still "surprised her with a gift, hugs, and encouragement" she says, "it was so rewarding. Everyone was happy, Mom and baby Lucy, my friend in Denver, and my daughter as well." This story was very moving. It can't be easy for this mother, but thanks to Ariel and her daughter she doesn't have to be alone.
