Lindsay Kristen Pashkow was born on January 9, 1993 at Martin Memorial Hospital in Stuart, Florida. At two days old, she was airlifted to Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Florida, where she was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect. She had open-heart surgery at 16 days old and stayed at Shands Childrenʼs Hospital for 3 months following the operation. She followed up every 3-6 months after the surgery at the pediatric clinic at Shands and continued to thrive until she developed symptoms of a failing heart valve. In February of 2004, Lindsay had her second open-heart surgery to repair the valve, but to no avail. They had to do an Aortic Valve Replacement in August of the same year, making it Lindsayʼs third open-heart surgery. She received a mechanical heart valve. She graduated high school in May 2011 and moved to Gainesville, Florida where she attended Santa Fe College. She held a position as a Certified Nursing Assistant at the Pediatrics Emergency Room at the same hospital in which she received all three of her open heart surgeries- Shands Childrenʼs Hospital. In fact, she worked alongside Nurse Connie Nixon, her nurse since birth, and often sheʼd cross paths in the hall with Dr. Fricker, her Cardiologist. At the early age of 21 years young, Lindsay gained her angel wings on August 13, 2014. She passed suddenly from a hemorrhagic stroke. Lindsay touched so many lives and left such everlasting memories for all who had the honor of knowing her during her short time here on earth. Lindsay had a rich life full of love and laughter, regardless of her ailment. She refused to let it define her. She lived for her family- family was everything to her... And friends- friends were like family. To know Lindsay was to love Lindsay ❤

Gabriella Pompa was born on January 10, 2019 at West Boca Medical Center in Boca Raton, Florida. Gabriella was a healthy, beautiful baby who loved to dance and sing to Sesame Street songs, and read many books. She loved being with her mom and dad, and always made anyone smile with just a wave. She brought love and joy to our family every day. To know Gabriella was to know pure happiness; to love every moment of life. Gabriella suddenly passed away at only 16 months on May 10, 2020 to an unknown cause. Her parents are still fighting to find answers, to know what happened to their precious girl. Since Gabriella’s passing, her parents want to bring awareness to SUDC (Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood). Losing a child is the worst pain a parent can experience, and to not know why is unimaginable. Gabriella is deeply loved, and loved to share her love with everyone around her. She had an old soul for such a young baby; a level of empathy and care for those around her that amazed us every day. If you ever knew Gabriella or even viewed her videos, you would see what a special child she was. We might not ever know what happened to our sweet Gabriella but we intend to make more parents aware of her situation. Gabriella was our first daughter, our best friend, and now she’s our angel. We plan to continue educating people on SUDC, so that awareness can drive scientific and medical research so that someday, no parent suffers an unimaginable, and unexplained loss due to SUDC. We honor her legacy every day by showing love and compassion to others, the same way Gabriella brought light and joy to our lives every single day. "The SUDC Foundation is the only organization worldwide whose purpose is to promote awareness, advocate for research and support those affected by SUDC. To learn more, or if you or someone you know has lost a loved one to SUDC, please visit sudc.org."
