Memories Captured by Kalago Photography
Tiny Light Holly is only 10 months old, but she dazzles everyone with her smile. And even through some tough times, she has always been a bright ray of sunshine.
Holly was diagnosed in utero with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, which meant only half of her heart was formed and functional. She underwent her first open heart surgery less than 24 hours after birth. But just before Holly was four months old, doctors discovered her heart function was deteriorating. Transplant became the only option. A month later, this Tiny Light received her second chance at life.
Transplant isn’t a cure so Holly will need to be on immune-suppression drugs for the rest of her life. But her parents Angela and Curtis have seen a dramatic improvement in their daughter’s health. “She has been a different baby since – so full of beans, so pink and so full of life. I dream that she will grow up to have a normal life and enjoy a normal childhood.”
