Though Lorelei was born with half a heart, every day her actions reflect a heart bigger than you can imagine. When she’s not braving through another procedure, or living the life of a 13-year-old, she and her mother are tending to the non-profit organization, Heart Hugs, which she created to distribute pediatric heart pillows to children after open heart surgery. She realized the relief this type of pillow could provide after her second surgery – it is designed to help the recovery of a broken sternum, a requirement of all open heart surgeries. She has distributed 15,000 pillows across 36 states and 22 countries, including the cardiac center at CHOP. You can find out more by visiting the facebook page, Heart Hugs. When asked about her daughter, Chelle commented that it sometimes feels like Lorelei has come from another world, she has insights that many, including adults, will never quite understand.
