This disorder is a hole in the wall separating the two lower chambers of the heart. In normal development, the wall between the heart chambers closes before birth, so that oxygen-rich blood is kept from mixing with the oxygen-poor blood. When the hole does not close, it may cause higher pressure in the heart or reduced oxygen to the body.
Thanks to our donors’ support, we recently provided funds to cover the cost for her open heart surgery.
Alvin was able to visit her and her family at their home recently. Check out these photos from his visit.
Now she has the hope to live a normal, healthy life – thanks to your care and compassion.
