Erin Grimm is a 36-year-old woman who needed a lifesaving heart and liver transplant. Having several complex congenital heart defects (CHD’s) Erin had several surgeries in her childhood, one of them being the Fontan. Her Fontan surgery re-routed her circulatory system and allowed her body to function with one working ventricle, but her Fontan failed therefore it caused issues for her heart and liver. Erin has never defined herself as medically fragile, though she was physically limited throughout her childhood; instead Erin focused on becoming the kindest, most compassionate, and well-rounded individual that she could be.

There is no one like Erin, she smiles through everything, and uses her sense of humor to cope with every situation that she endures health-wise. Erin has lived in Virginia for most of her life, and she grew up in Springfield. Andrew and her purchased a home after her transplants, she now resides in West Virginia. She is currently a junior at Arizona State University and is studying in Psychology; which she believes is her calling. She’s been with Andrew for over 9 years, and together they have a dog named Zeus who is spoiled rotten. Erin loves to read, write (she’s currently working on a several books), she loves to blog, cook, and when she’s healthy she enjoyed being in nature.
