Christen Sakales started this petition to American Girl Attn: Karen Merline, Senior Director
I am a 10 year old girl with Hypoplastic Left Heart, and I've had 3 open heart surgeries. I have a scar from those surgeries that is in the middle of my chest. 1 out of every 100 children are born with a congenital heart defect and many require open-heart surgery. These children live with a chest scar for the rest of their lives. If you make a doll with a chest scar, I and many others will feel safe and normal like it doesn't have to be a secret. The American girl doll company has a history of embracing diversity and "a doll for every Child". Please make a doll with a chest scar (or a scar kit) for the many kids who live with scars that show their bravery!
