I am supporting the Courage Classic for patients like Clara
This is Clara! She is 6 years old, has lost 8 teeth but only grown back 6. It makes for a silly smile, which is almost always plastered on her face. Clara is known at school for being full of joy, positivity and smiles. She loves all things fancy, kitty-cats, princesses, unicorns, her little sisters and poop jokes. She is thoughtful, kind, silly and would happily cream you in a game of go-fish... which is how she's spent so many hours in the hospital.
Clara was born with a significant heart defect, called HLHS. She had her first heart procedure before she was even born. In her 6 years of life, she's had 3 open heart surgeries, over 10 heart catheterization, and no one keeps track anymore of how often she is admitted to combat common illnesses, which her body just can't handle without medical help. This year she has missed over 30 days of kindergarten for illnesses which require some tylenol for her peers but threaten her life. Although life asks a lot of this sweet girl, she is resilient, full of joy and captures the hearts of everyone who knows her.
Check our her make a wish trip....this will make you love her even more.
