Washington baby in need of heart transplant
WASHINGTON, N.C. (WITN) -A family from Washington needs your help as they await a heart transplant for their newborn.
Ma’Lanie Blount was born with several heart defects.
The six-month-old baby has been in and out of Duke University Hospital since the end of May with doctors working to figure out how to best give this girl a chance at a full and promising life.
Earlier this week, it was determined that she would need a transplant.
Her mom Brianna Jones and grandmother Jessica Holland say it could be anywhere from three months to a year until they get a heart that works for this little girl.
Holland says overall, “We’re trading a bad heart for a whole other set of issues, but it’s a set of issues she could live with and without a heart, she’s not going to make it.”
