This is 14 year old Alonzo from Manta, in the Province of Manabí.
His breast bone was growing inward and causing heart and organ problems. He got out of ICU yesterday and will go home in one to two days.
The doctors at Roberto Gilbert Hospital in Guayaquil had to cut his sternum in two places to correct the inward growth. It was a long and difficult surgery but now Alonzo and his family know he can continue to grow without worries about his heart and organs.
Thanks to the doctors at Roberto Gilbert for their discount, to Luis Galarza or Coastal representative for all his efforts in arranging this surgery, and of course you, our very loyal donors!
