Hannah from Heartbridge
Hannah arrived at Heartbridge on May 14th, just a few days before our manager Cindy made her mid-month visit. Hannah has a very complicated set of special needs, with a VSD (hole between the chambers of her heart), Mirror-Image Dextrocardia (her heart is on the right side of her chest), and also Pierre Robin Syndrome. This is a cranio-facial abnormality in which the lower jaw is much smaller than normal. In Hannah’s case, this has caused a high-arched palate, cleft lip on the right side, a very small mouth, and her tongue is missing.
