“My name is Broghan Hill. I was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, but my parents didn’t find out until I was 11 days old. I was care flighted to Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas. My parents were told that I was a miracle from God because I wasn’t even supposed to take my first breath. I underwent my first open heart surgery at 15 days old and my second open heart surgery at 4 months old. At 17 months, my parents were told that I would need a heart transplant. My family and I moved to Houston when I was two years old. We had only been in Houston for 16 days when I received my heart transplant. I have also been diagnosed with epilepsy, tethered spine syndrome, along with nerve & joint damage. I will be 18 this summer, and I am 15 ½ years post heart transplant. I love reading books, talking to my friends, and I am a huge fan of Disney World.
When Miss Corey mentioned Hunt with Heart, I was really nervous & wasn’t sure if I wanted to go. I am so glad I went because I made lifelong friends. Kenna Mae & Madeline were my roommates, and we had so much fun. I love that we still keep in touch. I had never hunted before, much less shot a gun. Tim (my guide) was so kind & patient with me. I even shot my very first ram. I always look forward to seeing everyone at the HWH events. The friendships and memories that I have from Hunt with Heart will never be forgotten.”
