Maxine Zolk, of Palos Heights, is seeking a new heart and has touched the hearts of people who have come in contact with her.
At only 16 months of age, Maxine Zolk of Palos Heights is a true warrior at heart, and due to profound congenital defects that require her heart to be replaced, she’s a warrior-in-waiting.
The little girl has been a patient for the past eight weeks at the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago where she is “Listed as 1A, the highest status possible” on the transplant list, according to her mother, Melissa. The average wait time is three to four months.
