Hannah Mae Campbell was born on May 18th, 2012 in Everett, WA to Jennifer and Jonathan Campbell.  Her family was overjoyed with their beautiful new addition. Immediately after birth, they learned of Hannah's heart condition and have been on an emotional roller coaster ever since. Currently, Hannah Mae is being treated at Seattle Children's Hospital, one of the worlds best treatment facilities for child care.  The doctors and family have discussed and done everything they can to help Hannah Mae overcome her heart condition.  She is a strong little fighter who has fought for her life just as hard as her parents have.  With a new heart, she will have the opportunity to as normal of life as any parent would want for their child. On July 13th, 2012,  Hannah's family found out the surgery that was performed on July 5th was not as successful as they hoped for. They were given the choice to put Hannah on life support and have been praying they will be able to get her a heart transplant within the next three weeks. Please read this amazing family's story of strength and perseverance and make a donation to help save Hannah's life. Thank you and God Bless. 

"Jonathan Campbell and I had been together for 3 and 1/2 years when we got married. We have had full custody of his boys for quite some time but we always knew we wanted to try for another child together. He dreamed of another boy but I prayed and prayed for a girl. I always knew if I were to have a girl I would name her after the strongest woman I knew, my grandmother, who had passed away 2 years prior. The middle of August came and we found out we were expecting. A couple of months later we found out we were going to have a girl in May and her name was going to be Hannah. Blood tests and ultrasounds all came back normal and time was passing so quickly. The due date came and went and we all were anxiously awaiting Hannah's arrival.

In the early morning hours of May 18th Hannah Mae Campbell finally made her debut. I gave birth at 2:22am and instantly felt an indescribable love. She was placed on my chest for a minute or two before she was whisked away to be "cleaned up". Jon and I were overwhelmed with joy, tears streaming down our faces we sent texts and made calls. Our little girl was finally here! It seemed like seconds later our hospital room that was just filled with so much love was now filled with ICU doctors and nurses. I was then told Hannah's heart was beating 257 bpm and to kiss my girl because they were taking her to the ICU. I have never felt so empty in my life as my husband and my newborn baby girl left the room. I laid in bed paralyzed from the epidural, waiting for every text from my husband to find out what was going on. No one had answers. 15 hours later the hospital was transferring us to Seattle Children's hospital because they felt they could help us better.

So 35 days later countless blood tests, urine tests, echocardiograms, and ekg's we sit with this.... our newborn baby girl Hannah Mae Campbell has been diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy which is the thicked and enlarged ventricles in the heart. She has also been diagnosed with Supra ventricular tachycardia (SVT). The combination together is very rare and can be fatal. After numerous tries with medications we have been told that as long as Hannah has SVT's we will not be able to bring her home. So it leaves us to one of the toughest decisions Jon and I have ever had to make. We were approached by a doctor willing to try an oblation surgery. It is a very risky procedure and it has never been done on someone as small as Hannah before at Seattle Children's. We are finding that if this surgery is successful the benefits outway the risks and since we are backed into a corner we need to trust and have faith.

An overwhelming amount of people have asked us what they can do and this is what we ask... this Thursday, July 5th at 10am pacific time, Hannah Mae is heading for surgery. If you could take that time to send good thoughts and pray for the anesthesia to be successful, to give the doctor a steady hand and to let the procedure be effective we would greatly appreciate the support. Please share this message and encourage others to pray as well. Jon and I believe there is nothing greater than our god and the power of prayer. Thank you!"
