Hope, a smart and ambitious first-grader who loves math and reading, aces most any test that comes her way. But a few years ago, it was her heart that wasn’t getting a passing grade. Diagnosed with congenital heart disease, which caused shortness of breath from low oxygen levels, Hope underwent multiple heart surgeries, the first at just 3 days old. A UHCCF grant helped out with hospital stays, doctor visits and testing costs.
These days, with her oxygen levels higher, Hope is incredibly active, social and quick to make friends. And this girl who taught everyone a lesson on how to be brave, now dreams of being a teacher when she grows up.
