Mayah Marie Mazurkiewicz
June 20, 2018 – November 13, 2018
On Tuesday November 13th 2018 our beautiful 4 month old daughter Mayah Marie Mazurkiewicz gained her wings while being surrounded by loved ones after a long hard fought battle with Congentinal Heart Disease.
On Wednesday June 20th 2018 at 3:55 am. Mayah Marie was born at Rush University Medical Center, weighing 7lb 15 oz to her parents Alejandra Rodarte and Alex Mazurkiewicz. Hours after being born Mayah was quickly transferred to Christ Advocate Childrens Hospital in Oak Lawn, where she immediately had to have open heart surgery to survive. After long hours of being in surgery at just a day old her surgery was successful thanks to Dr. Ilbawi and his staff. Mayah remained her whole 4 months of life in a hospital bed alongside her parents. Mayah was so loved and will always be remembered as a beautiful, strong warrior. Mayah was not only unique because of her condition but she was also very tough and spirited. It was constantly felt in the PSHU and around everyone who knew and loved her. Mayah overcame major obstacles in her life that many of us wouldn’t go through in a life time. Mayah fought every single second, minute, and day of her life. She taught her parents that life is precious and that anything is possible even through the darkest and brightest days. Even though Mayah is not with us anymore she will always live in our hearts. We know she's gained a brand new heart next to God and will always look down on us.
We want to thank our family and friends for everything they have done for Mayah and for us, from the simplest texts,phone call or visits. We are truly grateful to have such a wonderful support system. We couldn't have done it without God and all of you. God bless you.
P.S to My Princess Warrior from Dad.
I will always keep my promise I made to you when you were born. I promised you that we would watch every Steelers game and I know this time it will be harder to watch the games. I know deep down you will be in my heart, watching the game with me in heaven. Daddy will always love you and will never forget the good times we had.
To my Mayah Marie my PRIDE and JOY if I could do it all over again I would do it in a heart beat. Not a single second was wasted next to you. I will miss those beautiful stunning eyes of yours, the way you looked at me and all the moments we shared together. You had such an amazing over powering strength that kept me going. You taught me that life is so precious.You will always live in my heart.
