GREELEY, Colo. — A mother and father are hoping for help for their 1-year-old daughter who was born with multiple medical problems including Down syndrome and congenital heart disease.

Olyvia weighs about 12 pounds. She was born 12 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound, 7 ounces.

Her parents, Kimber Chapman and Micah Amborn, call Olyvia their miracle baby because she beat the odds and is a happy little girl.

But doctors at Children’s Hospital say her veins are restriced and will one day need a double lung and heart transplant.

They have started a Go Fund Me page in hopes of raising $5,000 to bring her to Children’s Hospital in Boston for a second opinion.
