Duque Toddler Dies Tragically from Heparin Overdose

Almariah Duque died tragically of a Heparin overdose on March 31 after successfully surviving a liver, pancreas and intestines transplant surgery.  She had contracted an infection after the surgery and would die two days later when she was given an overdose of Heparin by staff nurses.
Within a few days, this young girl’s parents went from the highest of highs, thinking their child might see her second birthday, to complete devastation at losing her to an avoidable medical mistake.
Almariah was the only child of Greggorio and Kenya, young parents who had become accustomed to seeing their pride and joy in and out of hospitals all of her young life.  Now they are left to put back the pieces of a life that should have been.
