Faith's Angels Inc. was founded in memory of Faith Rose Goodfellow. Faith Rose was diagnosed at 28 weeks gestation with Hypo-plastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). HLHS meant Faith would be born with no left ventricle in her heart.
Faith was born on January 10, 2006 at the University of Michigan. At three days old Faith had open heart surgery to reroute the blood flow of her heart so she could survive. Without surgery HLHS babies typically die within two weeks of birth. At the end of her surgery Faith was placed on ECMO, transportable life support, due to low blood pressure. The next 11 days were filled with ups and downs as Faith's body adjusted to the new blood flow and all the medications she was given.
Two weeks after Faith's birth on January 24, 2006, while being surgically removed from life support due to her body proving it could support itself, Faith passed away.
