Team Molly Moo was formed in honor of the bravest girl we know! Molly was born on May 4, 2010. Molly was diagnosed with Heterotaxy Syndrome, several heart defects which include an ASD, VSD, CAVC defect, Interrupted IVC, TAPVR, Dextrocardia. She was also born with malrotated intestines, right sided stomach, midline liver and Polysplenia. Molly underwent her first heart surgery at 8 days old. Her first open heart surgery when she was 6 weeks old and her second open heart surgery at 8 weeks old. Molly was hospitalized from birth to 8 months. In those 8 months she had a lot of ups and downs. She dealt with several cardiac issues, was never able to breathe on her own and required a trach, never learned to eat by mouth and ended up with a g tube, battled a blood infection and chylous effusions, issues with her heart rhythm and has a pace maker. But through it all she never gave up. She fought so hard and still does to this day.
There once was a time we didn't know if she would make it to the next day and now we are getting ready to celebrate her 10th birthday!! It's all because of expertise, compassion and care she has received over the last 10 years from Boston Children's Hospital. I can say with 100% certainty if it wasn't for BCH Molly would not be here today and this walk in be in memory of her rather than with her and honoring her.
Please help us thank Boston Children's Hospital for all that they do not just for Molly but for all kids that are lucky enough to receive such top notch care from the #1 hospital in the country. Every dollar counts and we are grateful for any amount donated!
