Tough Chick: Sydney Lagrassa

Sydney was diagnosed with DiGeorge Syndrome which is a depletion of a portion of chromosome 22.  At 5 days old, she went into the surgery room for her first of many heart surgeries.  Sydney is now 13 and is set to have another surgery October 1st to repair a valve that is failing in her heart.  A portion of her heart is a transplant so the tissue will not grow as she grow, thus requiring more surgeries.


A fundraising event is set to be held 9.28.12 from 6pm-11pm at 115 Bourbon Street (3359 W. 115th st. Merrionette Park, IL 60803).  There will be a silent auction (that I will be offering free personal training sessions in), a car raffle and more including food and drink!  If you’re in the area, please come out and show your support for this truly “Tough Chick”! Buy Tickets here: http://www.toughchick.org/#!events or you can also donate (http://www.toughchick.org/#!donate) to the “Sydney’s Tough Chick’s” Benefit to aid Sydney and her family with her medical expenses and services.
