My name is Haleigh Miklic. I am in grade 5 at Cordova Bay School. I wanted to share a story with you.
When I was a baby I had a broken heart. I had to have open heart surgery to fix it. I have a healthy heart now because of the doctors who helped me at Children’s Hospital and everything they know about the heart.
When I was a year old, my daddy had a broken heart. The doctors were not able to fix it. It makes me sad because I miss him but my mommy told me he is our angel in heaven now.
I have been involved in the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Jump Rope for Heart since I was in kindergarten and have raised over $10,000.
Since this is my last year at Cordova Bay School, I was lucky to meet and make a connection with Dawson Nemeth who is in grade 1 at Cordova Bay and who was also born with a hole in her heart – just like me. Together – as Heart Sisters – we are going to join forces and help other families who have broken hearts.

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter. Together, I hope we can help other families who have broken hearts.
