This is a blog for my daughter Scarlett. She was born with a complex congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. She is my little hero.

2010 Heart Baby Calendar

It's been a while since I wrote that Scarlett had a photo shoot for a calendar of heart babies from Scarlett's cardiologist office (The Eller Congenital Heart Center at St. Joseph's Hospital). The calendars are supposed to be available next week. If you would like one, please send a check for $12.95 [per calendar] to: Eller Congenital Heart Center 500 W. Thomas Road, Suite 500. Phoenix, AZ 85013.  Include your name, email and telephone number with your check.

At this time, all calendar orders must be picked up at the Eller Congenital Heart Center (at the above address). If you live out of town, or if you are otherwise unable to go to the clinic to pick up your calendar... please send a note with your check that says "Melodie Mendivil will pick up". Then send me an email ( [with your shipping info] and let me know that I need to mail you your calendar.

Scarlett is featured in the month of June 2010. June was designated as "Tetralogy of Fallot" month. Tetralogy of Fallot is the most common congenital heart defect. The month of June had a beach theme and all the babies had on swimwear (as you can see from Scarlett's picture).

All proceeds from the calendar go to the Eller Congenital Heart Center to help support funding for research for congenital heart defects. Thank you for your support!
