Liana of Troy and the Heartbreakers
Welcome to our Team’s Walk and Play L.A. page!
We are excited to be part of the second annual Walk and Play L.A. in support of the mission of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
You have reached the team page of Liana of Troy and the Heartbreakers (Fight on!). Last year we were known as Princess Liana and the Skywalkers and after the year Liana had we had to pay tribute to our favorite team the USC Trojans and Liana's "Fight On" spirit! She truly does embody that motto and she is proud to be a part of the trojan family and a member of the baby trojan club.
Please take the time to click on the team members name (on the right or bottom if you are usng a mobile device in some cases). There you will read about our individual stories and also if you wish to make a donation on that team members behalf please do so from their page.
Last year we walked to raise money for the Urology department and this year we will be raising money for The Heart Institute - Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgery Doctors.
For those of you who don't know Liana was scheduled to finally have her corrective bladder surgery when it was found that she had a serious heart defect and within a month had to have open heart surgery. Thanks to all of her doctor's they were able to diagnose her issue and get her surgery done as soon as possible. She is continuing to recover and still has some issues to overcome so she can have her corrective bladder surgery, but without the collaboration of all the doctor's in the Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgery departments, Liana may not have been as fortunate as she is today to be on the road to recovery.
We are truly forever grateful to all of her doctor's including Dr. Bromberg, Dr. Ferry, Dr. Su, Dr. Badran, Dr. Starnes and the rest of the doctors and staff involved for taking care of our beautiful daughter. They really were like angels that seemed to always be there right when we needed them during the entire process.
With that being said if you would like to know more about Liana and her journey and how CHLA has provided care for her please click on our individual pages.
We would love for you to join us this year by being a team member and walking with us on Saturday June 2, 2018 at the Los Angeles Coliseum. Or if you would like to donate please click on the team member's page you would like to donate on behalf of and click the donate now button.
