2022 Rady Children’s Hospital Coronado Auxiliary Turkey Trot Ambassador – Audrey

“We became members of the Rady’s care team family in April of 2014, when our daughter Audrey was diagnosed with aortic stenosis at six weeks of age. Dr. Sanjeet Hegde has been her cardiologist and about every caring and patient member of the cardio floor has been her echocardiogram tech at some point! Audrey was frequently monitored early in her journey and the testing required fasting and sedation. As first time parents, we were terrified and emotional. The Rady’s team took us under their wing and always made us feel seen and heard. When Audrey suffered a seizure as a toddler, we were able to be connected with Dr. Hegde immediately and he checked in on her even on his ‘days off.’ The Bassett family is so very grateful for the care we have received at Rady’s.”

Thank you for your support and Audrey would love you to trot with her!

The trot sells out every year, so make sure to register today!
