Heartkid Stories

Sophie, Queensland

Sophie Nelson, Queensland

Sophie is three years old. She has Ventricular Septal Defect, Pulmonary Artresia, MAPCAS and Mild Pulmonary Stenosis. She has had three open heart surgeries, the first at 8 days old, the second at eighteen months.  Seven days after her second surgery she crashed and we nearly lost her, so the following day, only eight days post surgery, she had another major openheart surgery and came through beautifully. She is a small girl but has the biggest heart of gold. She loves her friends and she is very very caring!
