Kelley’s Story

Kelley was born with Tetralogy of Fallot and has had 2 lifesaving surgeries as a baby and the 3rd as an adult to replace and repair her valves and implant a pacemaker and cardiac defibrillator. Kelley is proud to be turning 36 this year and her greatest achievement is the recent birth of her son, ‘the miracle baby’ Nate who she was told she’d never be able to have because her heart wasn’t strong enough. Kelley knows she’ll need more surgery in the next couple of years and hopes that improvements in research and technology mean she will have a long and healthy future to see her son grow up.
