Mayda is a 7-year-old girl from Guatemala with an atrial septal defect, a large hole in her heart that causes fatigue, shortness of breath, and heart palpitations. According to the doctor that confirmed Mayda’s diagnosis, “surgery should completely correct her symptoms and allow her to lead a normal life.”
Mayda also has some issues with her teeth, and the cost of treatment will include preliminary dental work to prevent any infection from spreading from her teeth to her heart during surgery.
Mayda’s brother has the same heart condition, and is currently being sponsored by Watsi donors as well. Let’s ensure they both have the opportunity to live healthy lives together!
