About the Author
Lisa Colvil was born to a Vietnamese refugee who came to America after the fall of Saigon. She grew up as an only child, born with three types of CHD - dcrv-rv, PDA with
sub-pulmonic stenosis, and VSD. She had her first surgery at the age of 3 months in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at CHOP hospital. In hopes of warmer weather and better health, she and her mother moved to California where she had her second surgery at age 6 at Children's Hospital of
Los angels, California.
Lisa knows the ache of living with CHD within the Vietnamese culture. She knows the challenges involved in trying to face such a major illness, with the added complications of language and other barriers. She also knows the power of love and the hope of God.
As a result, it is her passion and desire to help others who have experienced similar hardships. She is a fierce advocate in the CHD Community and has made it her mission to break down stigmas associated with this invisible illness and provide support to those who live with CHD.
