Passed away at the age of 15 months at Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario with her mom and cousins by her side.
Sway was born with a heart condition called Long QT Syndrome type unknown, and was also diagnosed with Down Syndrome days later.
She had an operation November 24, 2014 and had a pacemaker put in and had visits to Sick Kids in Toronto for her check ups. Even though Sway was challenged with her conditions, she loved listening to music on a daily basis and being sung to. Sway enjoyed watching video’s with her dad every day. Her brothers and sisters would play with her and enjoyed her company. Dakota was a big part of her life. Sway was a very happy baby who smiled every day.
