My Story

Olivia was born 10 ½ weeks premature with a double aortic arch that kept her hospitalized for the majority of her young life. After multiple heart surgeries and many, many nights spent in the hospital, we were able to have a successful procedure in Boston relieving her of her heart issues. ​Here we are 3 years later with Oliva being diagnosed with stage 4 rhabdomyosarcoma an aggressive form of pediatric cancer. Doctors say it has nothing to do with her prematurity or heart issues. God chose her for this fight and nobody knows why.
