Evelyn’s 2-year-old daughter, Izabella, received a heart transplant when she was 17-months-old. Evelyn, mother of 5, lives in Flushing, Queens and is originally from the Dominican Republic. Harboring Hearts met Evelyn and Izabella at one of our community events, and since then they have been an integral part of our growing heart support community. Evelyn and Izabella often attend Harboring Hearts’ hospital community events, where they enjoy recreational activities, while offering encouragement and support to families undergoing similar situations. Thank you Evelyn and Izabella!
“Thanks to Harboring Hearts, I had the opportunity to meet people that were experiencing the same circumstances as my baby and we learn from each other.”
