Heal Emberly’s Heart! … 2½ year old Emberly, is a cardiac warrior! She had open-heart surgery at 8 days old at Boston Children’s Hospital, a cath balloon procedure in January 2020 at Columbia Med in NYC, and is scheduled for her second open-heart surgery at Columbia Med on October 21st. Money raised that is not used for costs related to the families upcoming stay in NYC, will be used towards future medical expenses for this beautiful, brave and remarkable little girl. The cardiology team in NYC feels this might be her last open-heart surgery, if all goes well, but she will require follow-up care for the rest of her life. Join us in efforts to help us heal Emberly’s heart! Make your donation today: http://gf.me/u/ydkdav
