At six months old, Olivia was admitted to Children’s National Hospital with what originally was thought to be pneumonia, but turned out to be a severe heart problem that would require a heart transplant. When she was two, Olivia underwent her heart transplant surgery. Now, fourteen years after her surgery, Olivia is a healthy 17 year old who dreams of becoming a cardiologist to help kids like herself. Olivia is a blast to be around and she loves singing and dancing with her friends, especially to Taylor Swift. Olivia also loves to share her Beads of Courage, a long necklace made of individual beads, each representing her bravery and strength through different procedures.
