Why We Walk
2020 Coastal Bend Heart Walk Digital Experience
We're not just walking. We're heartwalking for Ava and many others just like her.
Ava Cynthia Fernandez born May 17, 2016, born with Coarctation of the Aorta. She has underwent two heart procedures. First week after birth the Narrowing in her Aorta was repaired at Driscoll Childrens Hospital in Corpus Christi, Texas with Dr. Morales. At 3 months old she had her Angioplasty procedure, where a balloon stent was placed to keep her Aorta open with Dr. Mohammed Khan. Ava has had her journey with numerous and amazing Cardiologist at Driscoll Childrens Hospital. Because of the success of the balloon stent, she has not needed a procedure in 3 years! We still have a long journey ahead and She is proof that no matter what storm you face there is always a beautiful rainbow at the end. She is a fighter, she is brave, and strong and she is a CHD heart warrior/survivor. And as she keeps fighting CHD we will keep fighting along side her.
