Emaline was born with a congenital heart defect known as a Double Aortic Arch. She spent the first year of her life in and out of the hospital enduring exams and tests while struggling to breathe. She had a life saving surgery at 11 months old to fix her heart defect and her airway. She is a thriving 2 year old today because of the amazing cardiovascular and airway teams at Boston Children's Hospital and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
