Help kids like Siaana

Thankful. Life-altering news, yet one sentiment remained. Thankful.

An unexpected visit to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center led to a battery of tests. And then came the diagnosis: a congenital heart defect. Ten-month-old Siaana would require emergency open-heart surgery.

Her parents spent the week of Thanksgiving in the intensive care unit where Siaana began her journey to recovery… feeling thankful that their baby girl would have the chance to grow up.
