Jena and Mason Roth, along with their daughter Hadley, were honored at Bowling Green High School during spirit week in honor of the American Heart Association.

The school’s Stu Crew ran two fundraisers throughout the week for the organization.

At birth, Hadley was diagnosed with multiple heart defects with the main defects being Hypoplastic Aortic Arch, Bicuspid Aortic Valve, and Ventricular Septal defect. She was born at Toledo Hospital and was transported to Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor where she underwent her first open heart surgery at 1 week old.

The procedure that she had completed was called a hybrid procedure where she had bands put on her pulmonary arteries and had a PDA stent placed. This surgery acted as a bridge to allow for her to grow and get bigger until she could undergo her aortic arch repair between 3 to 9 months of age.

Hadley had several setbacks following her first surgery which made for a longer than expected hospital stay.
