Project Report | Jul 9, 2020
Grateful and happy

By Lola Fernandez | Director of Strategic Alliances

 

 

Bernardo lives in the outskirts of Mexico City in a difficult economic situation, he is grateful for the generosity and kindness of the donors who gave him the opportunity to have a normal healthy life. 

Bernardo who is 10 years old lives with his aunt, who has taken care of him since his Dad passed away two years ago.

Bernardo always had the idea that he had a tumor inside his heart, which made him socially withdrawn thus very lonely. Also due to his condition he was very limited in the amount of physical activity he could do before the surgery.

After seeing multiple specialists in public hospitals, he was referred to the Kardias program where he was diagnosed and treated.  After the surgery Bernardo improved remarkably, his appetite and physical activity increased. He felt he could breath and run like other kids. Before, even climbing a flight of stairs posted a huge challenge for him, now he climbs up and down as if it had never happened. 

Bernardo loves soccer, he likes to be a goalkeeper and he plays with his cousins when they visit him. He has plans for the future. His aunt says he has so many plans he won´t have time for everything.  He is excited and happy living his life. 

Bernardo is one of the lucky children who receive the beautiful gift of a chance at life. Thanks to donors like you who choose to help many girls and boys have access to the treatment they need.

 

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your choice means everything to us.
