Outgoing and chatty, Femi loves to read and do crafts, but her real passion is painting – a swirl of strokes and color: red for energy, yellow for joy and green for renewal.
Femi used to get dizzy and pass out a lot. That’s before she came to Children’s Hospital & Medical Center and was diagnosed with Restrictive Cardiomyopathy (a common cause of sudden cardiac arrest). Careful consultation led to the pivotal phase of Femi’s treatment and recovery – a heart transplant in July 2014.
Femi continues to come to Children’s for regular follow-up care. Aside from not being able to run long distances, her parents say the budding artist gets along beautifully.
That’s our masterpiece: a skilled team dedicated to providing world class care and improving the lives of children with complex heart conditions.
