For one patient, heart surgery led to the chance of a lifetime

>Since Klaire Hicks underwent life-saving heart surgery on Oct. 20, it’s been a whirlwind. Only two-and-a-half weeks after two holes in her heart were repaired at Children’s, Klaire flew to Hollywood to film a commercial with recording artist and Disney star Selena Gomez. And today The Dallas Morning News followed her around Velma Penny Elementary School in Lindale. The photographer captured “a day in the life of Klaire” in anticipation of tomorrow’s 22nd Capital One Bank Adolphus Children’s Parade where she will make another debut.

If you’re curious about Klaire’s visit with Selena, look at our photo gallery for a sneak peek of behind-the-scenes moments and watch the commercial during the parade’s live coverage tomorrow on WFAA-TV. It will also air on more than 350 television stations at various times throughout the holiday season.
