Campbell Martinez, Louisiana

Campbell Martinez, Louisiana

Campbell was diagnosed with Tetrology of Fallot the day she was born.  On March 2, 2011, at the Children’s Hospital in New Orleans, she had open heart surgery at only 6 months old.

Campbell is almost 2 years old now and she’s doing great!  She loves coloring, drawing with chalk and playing with her twin sister and two older sisters.  She has been an absolute trooper and a blessing to our entire family. We feel very blessed and privileged that God gave her to us!

My family and I are thankful to and support the American Heart Association because without them, the technology and studies for heart disease and stroke would not be as advanced as they are today.  I believe that because of the American Heart Association, our sweet Campbell will have a healthy life just as the rest of us do!

I will continue raising money each year for babies born with TOF and other heart conditions because every child deserves a great life.  Through the American Heart Association, we are several steps closer each day to making this happen.
