Gemma’s story started the day she was born. After hearing a harsh murmur at each check up for the first month of life, her pediatrician recommended seeing a cardiologist. At six weeks old, she had her first echo and EKG. Doctors discovered the murmur was due to Aortic Stenosis. We continued to monitor her heart every three months and at 10 months she had her first procedure - balloon dilation valvuloplasty. The results were better than expected and after a quick recovery she was back to her normal, spirited self. Today we continue to monitor her heart and realize future procedures are eminent. But, while her journey with this diagnosis will last a lifetime, we’re optimistic that with the amazing work of talented medical professionals and generous funding in pediatric cardiology, she’ll live a full and happy life.
