Meet Aspen – one of the kids you've helped!

Aspen White is a huge Grizzlies fan. She knows all the players by name – Marc Gasol is her favorite. She loves watching the games on television. But she gets the biggest smile on her face when she sees the Le Bonheur commercial which airs during the game.

Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital saved Aspen’s life. She was born with a congenital heart defect and surgeons at Le Bonheur helped repair her heart when she was just 5 months old. Aspen has had several procedures in the cath lab and will need another open heart surgery as she grows.

“Aspen has a heart condition, but she has never let it slow her down. She faces every medical procedure like a champion,” said mom Leah White.

Aspen, now 6, is an active little girl. She loves taekwondo, gymnastics and playing basketball. Thanks to people like you, Aspen’s heart can keep up with her bravery and optimism. Thank you for helping kids like Aspen!
