ST. PETERSBURG, FL – 9-month-old Jaelyn Anderson desperately needs a new heart.

Four months ago, she was diagnosed with an infection in her heart.

She’s now in intensive care awaiting a heart transplant.

Jaelyn’s family had been collecting donations for her treatment. But on Valentine’s Day, Jaelyn’s grandfather was robbed of $3,000 in donations.

Although devastated by the theft, the family isn’t letting it get them down.

They’re focusing on Jaelyn and patiently hoping she’ll get a new heart soon.
