It is an exciting time! Our team of MEDRIX specialists will soon be physically in Vietnam to work with our partners. One of the most exciting and rewarding times is when MEDRIX medical team members can interview the families of the children who need life saving heart surgery. We will soon be sitting with the parents of the little children to learn about their lives and their hopes for a healthy future for their beloved child. This connection time is both inspirational and sometimes “heart wrenching”.
It is donors like you who make it possible for MEDRIX to support children needing lifesaving heart surgery from families with limited resources to provide heart surgery for their child. The Cardiac Centers where MEDRIX works do the hard work of diagnostics, research, and eventual heart surgery. MEDRIX has the joy of supplying the needed resources for families that have been carefully vetted. Donors like you have a fulfillment of knowing a child has received the ‘gift of life’.
MEDRIX has been able to assist in the surgeries of 186 children. Children who are now growing into young school age children, children who are now young adults and are living ‘their dream’ of a healthy lifestyle. Thank you for your donation to assist additional children who need lifesaving heart surgery!
Little Hung 2 days after surgery gaining strength!
Being grateful is both a state of the mind and the amazing opportunity to give thanks for the ‘little’ and the “big” happenings in our lives. Have you had such a happening in your life recently? Let me share with you a short story about two little baby boys, Hung and Tu. Hung was nearly two when his parents were told he had a hole in his heart. They were so poor they could not afford the surgery.
And Tu was just born when his parents were informed that he had a severe deformity in his heart. The devastation for the parents was great!
But there is a good part of these little boys’ stories! The doctors who found the heart abnormalities also knew of MEDRIX organization. MEDRIX has helped over 174 parents and little patients just like Hung and Tu. MEDRIX provides life saving heart surgery for children whose parents could not afford such a miracle for their child. Hung and Tu will only know the stories of why they have scars on their handsome little chests. And like over 174 families of children with life-saving heart surgery, their parents thanked MEDRIX and persons like you for giving them a chance to see their little guys grow strong and healthy.
Join us and others to give what you can so the number of children who need lifesaving heart surgery will continue to be strong and courageous. Thank you! Over 174 parents and their children thank you! MEDRIX thanks you for joining us to provide many more needed life-saving heart surgeries for children in Vietnam!
MEDRIX is celebrating the completion of Life-Saving- Heart Surgeries for children in need during the year of 2022. Now we look forward to the year, 2023, the “Year of the Cat” in Vietnam.

MEDRIX’s determination is continues to assist in sponsoring additional children needing lifesaving heart surgery! And with your help we can do this! Congenital, (genetic) heart disease globally is the number one abnormality for children.
MEDRIX thanks you, our donors for your help over the years in sponsoring many children for surgery. And we look forward to having your partnership 2023. Now back to the Cat: It is the time of 2023 Lunar New Year celebrated globally by approximately 4 ½ billion people. It is a time of year of great gatherings of family, former and current teachers, and friends. Families have the tradition to gather and share yummy food and fun celebrations together. There are community gatherings, parades, and pink or yellow blooming bougainvillea’s trees or branches to decorate the streets, homes, schools, businesses, and hotels. Bright red banners blow in the breeze to greet all who come and go. Another fun tradition is to give children a bright red envelope with a ‘little money’ in it. No matter the amount placed in the envelope, the custom is a joyful one for the children. MEDRIX wants to thank you for your donations both large and small. No matter if it is in a red envelope or a gracious donation ‘on line’, we thank you. You can make 2023 a year of hope and promise for the parents of children with life threating heart defects. Fill this new year with the joy of knowing you have brought joy to yourself and hope to others by assisting in the sponsorship for a child in urgent need of lifesaving heart surgery!
