Kyra's Story: A Journey Toward a Healthy Heart

September 25, 2015

Kyra was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, which meant she was missing part of her heart’s structure. The early years of her life were spent undergoing open-heart surgeries and other major procedures.

Thanks to the work of Carl Backer, MD, and Jeffrey Gossett, MD, Kyra is now a happy and active third grader, though she will eventually need a heart transplant.
