Kimberly is a 5-month-old baby girl. She lives in a small city in central Bolivia with her parents, who work in the mining industry, and three siblings.
Kimberly was born with several defects in her heart, including a hole between the two upper chambers as well as a second hole between the two lower chambers. As a result of these conditions, her heart struggles to pump blood through her body. During surgery, doctors will be able to sew these holes shut so that her heart functions well and is stronger. Her surgery is scheduled for January 19th.
Fortunately, the organization, Gift of Life International, is subsidizing part of Kimberly’s medical care, but her family still needs help to fund the remaining $1,500.
Kimberly’s mother says, “Our family is very hopeful that this surgery will be a success!”
