Screening Attended: Colonial School District
Activities: dance, camp, music and hanging out with my friends
Diagnosis: Partial Anomolous Pulmonary Venous Return and Atrial Septal Defect
How has life changed: I had open-heart surgery on January 24, 2008, two years to the day that Simon died. Every time I look in the mirror, I am reminded of how lucky I am, and I think of Simon and the Sudman family. I want to help Simon’s Fund so that they can keep screening kids’ hearts and saving lives like mine! I regularly attend Simon’s Fund screenings and events. For my bat mitzvah project, I sold heartbands to raise money for Simon’s Fund.
Message to Simon’s Fund: Thank you for keeping kids’ hearts healthy! My family and I will always be grateful to Simon’s Fund for saving my life!
