Welcome to My Personal Page
Hi. My name is Angela LaBoccetta. I am seventeen years old. I was born with a heart condition called Tetralogy of Fallot, which contains four defects of the heart. When I was five months old, I had open heart surgery and needed a valve put into my heart. After my surgery and recovery, I was just like any normal kid: I loved to ride my bike, play sports, dance and spend time with my family and friends. However, this valve only lasts for about 10-15 years. My heart is currently operating without a valve and I will need a new one in the near future. I am having an MRI in the spring to see if I will need surgery this upcoming year. Every year, my family, friends and I participate in the Long Island Congenital Heart Walk. In 2015, I started my own team called Angela's Amazing Angels. Over the last five years, we've raised over thousands of dollars to support the Children's Heart Foundation. Without your donations and support, children like me would not be able to live long healthy lives. All the money raised will be used for research and treatment for congenital heart diseases. This year I participated in the walk virtually. I am hoping next year we can all walk together in person!
