Mildred: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week

Adorable Mildred was named by one of our wonderful heart surgery program volunteers in honor of her mother who recently passed away. She is only three months old and has a pretty serious heart defect—Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF). ToF means she has four specific defects with the structure of her heart and can be life-threatening if left untreated. As you can see from little Mildred’s photo, she is growing very well—especially her chubby cheeks!

We have arranged for Mildred to have her surgery at a hospital in Shanghai where they have had a lot of success repairing this type of defect. The pediatric cardiologist has recommended that she wait until she is six months old to have her surgery but it will be expensive because there is so much for them to repair. Mildred has a beautiful future ahead of her if we can heal her heart. If you would like to be a part of her healing please go to her sponsor page. A donation in any amount will help this little girl live a long, healthy life.
