Little Heart Hero: Brooklyn

Throughout the month of February, as we build awareness about heart disease, we are going to be celebrating our Little Heart Heros by sharing their incredible stories. We hope you find them to be as inspiring as we do.

Brooklynn, 7, was born in China and diagnosed with Tetrology Fallot when she was just two. She received a shunt while she was still living there and went to live at an orphanage. Brooklynn’s adopted family travelled to all the way to China in July of 2011 to bring her home to the US. “Brookie” had open heart surgery last December and hasn’t looked back!
