Milk Stories: Monica & Catalina

Milk Stories: Monica & Catalina

monica-and-catalina-milk-storyOur daughter, Catalina, was born at Denver Children’s Hospital on February 21, 2016. She was diagnosed with a Congenital Heart Defect called Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA). Catalina had 2 open heart surgeries and fought long and hard in the Cardiac ICU.

On April 12, 2016, we decided to take her off life support as her heart was failing. During this time, I was able to collect an abundant amount of milk as Catalina was not able to feed. After she passed, donating my milk was my only option.

It gives me warmth to know that other families are benefiting from my milk. This organization went above and beyond to help me achieve my goal of donating my milk. Everyone was pleasant to speak with and so helpful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

The dollars that go to RMCHF go directly to patients and their families and that sets this foundation apart from others where fundraising is for the bricks and the mortar and the equipment. It’s really for the families and the patients. -Dr. Steve Leonard
