Meet Maria, a one-year-old with Down Syndrome from La Paz, Bolivia, who lives with her parents; her father is a musician, and her mother is a student.
Maria was born with two holes in her heart: one between the two upper chambers, and another between the two lower chambers. Because of her heart defect, blood leaks through the holes, leaving her weak and short of breath. To improve her quality of life, skilled surgeons with our medical partner, International Cardiac Alliance, will sew both of the holes closed so that blood flows normally through her heart and body.
Her family is currently reaching out for your assistance in raising $1,500 to support the cost of this treatment. Your help can make a significant difference in Maria’s life and her family’s journey towards her health and well-being.
Her mother shared: “Our family was so happy to learn that our daughter can have this chance to have her heart fixed!”
