My 7 year old daughter Violett (Letty), was born with CHD (Congenital Heart Defect). Her form is Tetralogy Of Fallot. In March 2019 she quickly needed a surgery as she had developed Ventricular Tachycardia unexpectedly within 3 months of her last check up (where everything looked good).
During her hospital stay to keep myself calm I decided to design her a sweater. She is since doing extremely well.
