Kenny: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Kenny is only 5 months old and is struggling with a serious heart defect. This sweet little boy from Hunan has two heart defects, the most serious being a very large ventricular septal defect (VSD), as well as pulmonary hypertension (PH). PH means the VSD is causing abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs and is making the right side of the heart work much harder than normal. PH needs to be treated as quickly as possible to avoid possible congestive heart failure.

Kenny has already been moved to one of the best cardiac hospitals in Shanghai and is scheduled to receive his heart surgery Monday afternoon. He is so little and just wants to be held by his caregiver all the time. Although Kenny still needs over $6000 to cover his hospital expenses, he just couldn’t safely wait until he was fully funded. If you would like to help contribute to his surgery and be part of his healing process, please visit Kenny’s sponsor page. We ask you to please keep Kenny in your thoughts for a successful surgery and a full recovery.
