Born in 2009, little Abbey pinked right up like a normal baby. 24 hours later, as her parents were preparing to take her home, medical personnel detected a heart murmur.
Abbey was born with a defective heart and would need open-heart surgery in a matter of days or she would die. Abbey was admitted to the UC Davis Children's Hospital-Northern California's only inland full-service pediatric heart center-to correct a congenital Heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Thanks to the tremendous care Abbey received, today she is a vibrant three year old with a great future.
In honor of Abbey and other children born with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD), a Guinness World Record will be be attempted and broken on July 23, 2012 at the California State Fair for the "longest consecutive ride on a Ferris Wheel."
Abbey's family friend, Christina, will attempt to ride the Eagle 16 while raising awareness and funds for the Children's Miracle Network and children with congentital heart defects.
Abbey's Wheel Deal is seeking the support of both individual donations as well as corporate sponsors.
