Little Leo was born with a congenital heart defect. He was diagnosed with a coarctation of the aorta, and a hypoplastic arch. This is a narrowing of the main artery that supplies blood to the vital organs and the lower extremities and required extensive surgical repair. Leo was 11 days old when the doctors repaired his heart. After a very involved surgery and an extensive stay at CHEO, Leo is now at home with his family and thriving. His Mom, Dad and sisters are thrilled and singing the praises of the level of care and compassion received at CHEO.
