CAMDEN, S.C. — Even before Felicia Jones' daughter Faith was born, she knew she was special.
"I knew from the moment that she kicked inside of me that Faith was going to be a fighter... and that she's here for a reason," Jones said.
While carrying Faith, Jones learned of the fight both she and her daughter would have in the years to come.
"Faith was born with a heart defect.... I found out when I was five months pregnant with her," Jones said. "They only gave her a 20 percent chance of survival, so they didn't think that she was going to make it with her heart condition, but she's here."
Over the years, Faith has had a lot of challenges, receiving numerous surgeries to try to repair her heart, but now, at seven-years-old, her mom says her heart is failing.
"It's a lot. I try to stay strong for Faith. I know I can't show her that it's bothering me," Jones said. "She even asked me one time, 'Mommy, why can't I get your heart?' And, if it was that simple, she would've had my heart."
For now, they're on the waiting list for a new heart and collecting donations for the procedures ahead.
"To get my new heart... I can go run, I can do, I can play," Faith said.
