Have you seen this week’s copy of People magazine? It features the story of Avery Toole who was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), one of the most rare and most devastating congenital heart defects. As a long-time nurse in Children’s Hospital Boston’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, her mother, Cheryl, knew Avery might one day need a heart transplant. What she didn’t know was the amazing relationship that she, her husband, Mike, and Avery would one day have with the family of the boy whose heart now beats in Avery’s chest.
