Around 7:30 pm, we will have a reflection titled “What Happens Next: The Truth of Life with a Child’s Unexpected Diagnosis” by Maria Dunlap, Founder & CEO of Vivian’s Victory.
Maria Dunlap is the founder and CEO of Vivian’s Victory, but most importantly, “Vivi’s” mommy. Vivian’s Victory is a not for profit agency that meets the urgent, personalized needs of families whose child faces a poor prenatal diagnosis or other prolonged illness. The agency started in response to the prenatal diagnosis of Vivian with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). Only living for 59 short days, “Vivi” taught her mother and the world so much about love and suffering. Dedicated to continue the mission that Vivian started here on earth, Vivian’s Victory works to provide lifeline’s for families believing that no child should have to battle illness alone, and no family should be alone in the struggle. In addition to Vivian, Rod and Maria have 5 other beautiful children.
