Welcome to the homepage for Gabriela's Warriors, friends and family of Miguel and Leslee Yustiz dedicated to supporting them through the birth, treatment and care of their daughter, Gabriela, who is being treated for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS).

Shortly before Labor Day 2019, an ultrasound revealed that the Yustizs' unborn daughter, Gabriela, had a severe congenital heart defect. Her condition, diagnosed as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), meant that the left side of Gabriela's heart (the side which pumps oxygenated blood to the rest of the body) was severely underdeveloped. In later appointments, Miguel and Leslee would learn that HLHS, if left untreated, is fatal. Gabriela's treatment will require three open-heart surgeries in the first few years of her life, the first of which will happen just two days after birth!

To be sure, the Yustiz family has a long road ahead! Their desire is for God to be glorified in their lives as they respond to this significant trial. We invite you to walk with them through this difficult time by following updates on this site and considering how you could help.
