“Hello, my name is Nijah and I’d like to introduce you to my daughter Lauren. Lauren was born on May 6, 2019 at Union Hospital in Elkton, Maryland. When Lauren was born, she was immediately transported to Univ. of MD Hospital for surgery. She was born with a tumor that had six cysts in her stomach. After a successful surgery, during her recovery period, it was discovered she had a number of abnormalities associated with her heart. In Lauren’s short lifespan, she has been examined by a number of pediatric cardiologist who have made every effort to help us find a solution for Lauren’s ailments; Congenital Heart Failure, Atrial Septal Defect (ASD), Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT), Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome (WPW) and Left ventricular noncompaction.” – written by her mother, Nijah.
