Meet Our 2018 Walmart and Sam's Club CMN Ambassador, Adeline

Samaritan Medical Center in Watertown, NY is excited to announce that Adeline has been named our local Walmart and Sam’s Club Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Ambassador. Adeline will serve as a fundraising and awareness ambassador for Samaritan Medical Center and for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Adeline was diagnosed in utero with a severe congenital heart defect.  After she was born, doctors performed genetic testing with a portion of her umbilical cord and found a piece of her 22nd chromosome to be missing; she was diagnosed with Velocardiofacial Syndrome.

September 9, 2015 was Adeline’s first open heart surgery. And what now feels like a blink of an eye, Adeline’s cardio team is currently in the process of planning her next open heart surgery that will take place this year.

“I don’t know what tomorrow will have in store for us, but since tomorrow hasn’t happened yet I will focus on the here, the now, and how every single day I am grateful for my daughter.” – Adeline’s Mom
