Primrose Vista Ridge & the friends of Ashley Lenzi are uniting to raise money for incurred medical costs for their daughter Emma.

Emma needs many hearts to join together to help her one heart. The Primrose Vista Ridge Family is committed to providing support for our school family & the community. One of our teachers, Mrs. Lenzi & her husband welcomed their second daughter, Emma, into their family on September 8th. Emma was born with a congenital condition known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. While infants successfully treated for HLHS have a good chance of survival, there are many surgeries to endure in the beginning. Treatment for hypoplastic left heart syndrome involves either a three-step surgical procedure or a heart transplant. In hypoplastic left heart syndrome, the left side of the heart can't properly supply blood to the body because the lower left chamber (left ventricle) is too small or in some cases it may not even exist. In addition, the valves on the left side of the heart (aortic valve and mitral valve) don't work properly, and the main artery leaving the heart (aorta) is smaller than normal. Ashley and Anthony Lenzi will need to focus all of their energy & strength on taking care of Emma when she arrives, especially thru her first surgery. Emma will remain in the hospital anywhere from 1-6 months. There will be extensive medical costs for the family during this long process to get Emma's heart working and healthy. We are asking for donations to help the Lenzi family with incurred medical cost, as Emma begins her journey toward a healthy childhood. The money donated will be used to pay for medical expenses not covered by insurance & to help with daily living expenses while Emma is being cared for after surgery. Please keep Ashley, Anthony, & big sister, Jenna in your prayers at this time! They will need all of the support & prayers and happy thoughts they can get! We hope friends & family, along with the Primrose Vista Ridge family can join together to help the Lenzi family at this difficult time. If you have any questions or just need to contact a representative for the family please contact Anthony at 512-745-5966 or email All your generous contributions, thoughts, and prayers are deeply appreciated!! Thank you so much!
