NEWS: Dramatic heart surgery saves Ohio child felled by Lyme disease
"As Lucille Ashford's mom raced the 10-year-old toward a Cleveland emergency room last month, the girl lost consciousness. Lucille's heart was struggling to keep her alive. Doctors quickly intervened and saved the child's life. Then it took a team at Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital a couple of days, a slew of tests and even more cooperation from the exceptionally brave child to figure out what was wrong. Lucille had Lyme disease, and it nearly killed her."
