About Remington's Heart Foundation
Remington was born on February 1st, 2017 with a rare and incurable critical congenital heart defect called HLHS. Her parents were given three difficult options that no parent should ever have to choose from. Ultimately, they chose to give her a chance at life through open-heart surgeries. Remi was a rockstar, and she beat all of the odds after her first open-heart surgery. Right before she turned 2 months old, she passed away due to complications caused by her complex heart. The Remington’s Heart Foundation was formed in honor of Remington. We are dedicated to helping families of babies and children with congenital heart defects because we have been in their shoes, and we know their struggle.
