began a new chapter entering our 21st year of Angels On The Bay, the story of Valentina Marie Allen, the child known to have “Half a Heart But Twice The Fight” reassures us we must continue our endeavors to raise funds and awareness for children who need a little miracle. She was a blessing and joy to those who were fortunate enough to have her in their lives. Valentina who was the great-granddaughter of one of our long time Board Members, Nicholas LoPrinzi, was a fighter for the two years she was with us. Born with HLHS – hypoplastic left heart syndrome, heterotaxy, and asplenia, she underwent many surgeries but lost her battle on May 12, 2015. She is now a Princess amongst the Angels in heaven forever watching over us all. This Angel is now serves as our guardian, our inspiration, as we continue in our journey.
