Most of you remember our first heart patient, Daniel from three years ago. He was a blue baby and when his mother was told that he only had months to live, HKIE became involved. His surgery was immediate and performed at Hospital Metropolitano in Quito, by one of Ecuador's foremost pediatric heart surgeons, Dr Gerardo Davalos. After his first surgery, Daniel's family was told he would likely need another one in a few years.
Now Daniel will have a right cava vein ligation surgery.. Obviously another serious operation..Needless to say, both Daniel and his mother Silvy are scared and nervous. His surgery takes place this Tuesday midday at Hospital Metropolitano with Dr. Davalos.
Please keep Daniel and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this critical time.
And a huge thank you to the doctors and Fundacion Metropolitano and all our donors who work together to help young Daniel have a normal, full life.
