Alexandra M, OLOL Hero 2010-3

Alex was born in 1991 with a Single Ventricle, Transposition of the Great Vessels and Pulmonary Stenosis. She has endured 10 cardiac surgeries and countless hospitlizations through the years. This life of medical intervention is the only life she has known and she has a great attitude about her life.

She has incredible faith and doesn't let her heart defects stop her from doing what she wants. She has gone on mission trips to Mexico and Honduras...and even lived in an orphange with her family in Honduras for 2 months. She has raised at least $100,000 for cardiac research over the years and has earned many awards for her efforts. But...the best thing about Alex is her smile and her joy of life. She doesn't know what the future holds....but she wants to make a difference in the world!

Alex's slogan: If not now.....when?
