Seven-year-old Grace Cooper was born with a congenital heart disease called Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome. Since then, Grace has had three successful open heart surgeries at Medical City Children’s Hospital.
Grace, along with Make-A-Wish, donated 50 Build-A-Bears to Medical City Children’s Hospital patients. The bears were built by other Make-A-Wish children to give to patients in the hospital.
Grace’s pediatric cardiologist, Dr. Penn Laird, discussed Grace and her heart condition.
