#1 Audrena Cardenas
Audrena Cardenas was born with Ectopia Cordis, which is a rare disease in which the heart develops outside the chest cavity…causing extreme health danger.
#2 16 Weeks Of Pregnancy
Ashley, Audrena’s mother was told about this condition in her 16th week of pregnancy.
#3 Less Than 10 percent
Less than 10 percent of babies born with Ectopia Cordis live longer than three days after birth. However, Ashley prayed that she had a longer time with her beautiful new daughter.
#4 Open Heart
Open heart surgery was performed on Audrena immediately after her birth. They created a new chest cavity for her heart to be placed in. Audrena began to stabilize after her body responded positively to the surgery.
#5 90 Days Later…
After being in the hospital for 90 days, Audrena was finally able to join her family, wearing a chest guard to protect her heart. Ashley and Audrena’s father expect her to live a healthy and happy life after fully recovering, all thanks to amazing doctors!
