When 3-year-old Tenley smiles at you, you can’t help but smile back. And thanks to Texas Children’s Hospital, she has a smile on her face almost all of the time.
Born early at 31 weeks along with her twin brother, she was diagnosed with a fatal heart condition that could only be repaired with open heart surgery. For five months, a team of pediatric specialists at Texas Children’s provided the advanced technology and skill Tenley needed to grow into the dancer and music lover she is today. She passes on the caring of the doctors and nurses at the hospital by sharing her beautiful smile with everyone she meets.
Leave a comment to cheer on Tenley as she travels to Washington, DC to champion children's health issues.
