Kiran is a 12-year-old boy from Nepal with rheumatic heart disease. His condition causes severe chest pain and limits his ability to live a normal life.
Luckily, Kiran’s heart can be repaired with valve replacement surgery.
Kiran is the second of five children. He is in the fifth grade and his favorite subject is Nepali. During his free time Kiran likes to play soccer and cricket with his friends, but he has to refrain from too much physical activity because of the severe chest pain he experiences when he plays. Kiran wants to become a driver when he grows up because he loves cars. He hopes to one day earn enough money to support his mother.
Let’s help Kiran get the surgery he needs to live a normal, healthy, 12-year-old boy life!
