Regina from Mexico Boston Children

Meet Regina

Two days after Regina Torreblanca was born in Mexico City, Mexico, an echocardiogram revealed that she had hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), a serious and complex congenital heart defect that results in an underdeveloped left side of the heart. Nine years and three heart surgeries later, Regina is full of life and continues to inspire her parents. “The truth is, Regina is never tired,” Elizabeth says, laughing. “She never stops!”

For 150 years, families have come from around the corner and across the world, looking to Boston Children's for answers. This is the place where the most difficult challenges are faced head on, where the impossible becomes possible, and where families in search of answers find them.
