Success! Alexa from Guatemala raised $345 to get healthy.

  • $345 raised, $0 to go
Fully funded
Alexa's treatment was fully funded on August 23, 2012.

Alexa is a 12-year-old girl with a heart problem that makes her constantly short of breath and unable to lead a normal active life. Alexa’s condition is called an atrial septal defect, and she has a large hole in the membrane that is supposed to separate the two upper chambers of her heart. The defect can be corrected through surgery, but Alexa’s family can’t afford the procedure, so it’s up to us to raise the $345 she needs to have it.

Alexa is the oldest child in her family. She sets a positive example for her siblings by always doing well in school, and just wants to be able to live a vibrant and active life like a normal teen girl. Let’s make sure she can do it!
