Alexis' Donate Life Run/Walk Fundraising page
Thank you for visiting my personal page and helping me to support the Donate Life Run/Walk benefitting the OneLegacy Foundation.
In 2002, shortly after I was born, I was diagnosed with a critical congenital heart defect, called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. My best chance of survival was to be listed for a heart transplant. Without a life saving heart transplant, I would not be here today.
I miraculously waited 6 months and 4 days for the PERFECT heart. It was a difficult wait and I fought very hard, surprising my family, nurses and team of physicians on many occasions.
I was able to go home from the NICU at Loma Linda Univ Children's Hospital for the 1st time when I was 8 months old.
My donor was a 3 month of baby boy named Nicholas. His family made the selfless decision to share his heart in their time of grief.
I honor my donor each and everyday by living my life to the fullest and taking care of my perfect heart.
I am now 17, a junior in highschool, an Ambassaor for OneLegacy, I love to kayak, listen to music and paint.
Thank you for your donations for a cause that means so very much to my family and I.
