Port Angeles: Toddler awaiting heart transplant

PORT ANGELES — A 21-month-old local girl was added to the heart transplant list early Tuesday at Children’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center in Seattle.

Haille Alley, the granddaughter of Don and Kathleen Anding of Port Angeles, was diagnosed with congenital heart failure Feb. 17 after Children’s Hospital doctors found a tumor on the left side of the toddler’s heart.

As of Tuesday, Haille remained in serious condition at the hospital, which specializes in pediatric care.

The Andings, who have custody of the toddler, have stayed with Haille since she was hospitalized more than a week ago.

Haille is the daughter of Anthony Jackson and Crystal Alley.

“She (Haille) was officially added to the heart transplant list today,” Mrs. Anding said Tuesday during a telephone interview from the toddler’s hospital room. “It could take from a day to six months (to find her a heart).”
