A young girl born with her heart beating outside her chest is defying the odds.

When Virsaviya Borun was born in Russia, doctors told her mother that she’d never be able to walk or talk, according to Inside Edition.

Borun was born with a condition called Pentalogy of Cantrell. Her rib cage can’t grow and her heart grows outside her chest, covered only by a layer of skin.

Borun now lives in Hollywood, Florida with her mom, Dari Borun. She loves to sing and dance. When she’s out and about, she wears a thick shield over her chest to protect her heart.

Dari posts photos and videos of her daughter defying the odds, singing and dancing despite doctor’s initial prognosis.

Every day is a blessing 🙌🏻 When we going through the hard times we can seem to be fine for others but at the same time cry out to God for help in our souls , see nightmares , feel depressed , be frustrated and loose hope . At this moments we still have to find something to be grateful for , something that makes us happy . We have to find strength to smile and find a reason to go and try over and over again , to fight for your dreams , to have faith at least as a mustard seed size 👌🏻 its understandable to have a fear to start try again when we failed even once but Jesus will support our faith and will direct us , will bless our path .
