Wendy: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week
Sweet little Wendy is seventeen months old and from Henan Province. When Wendy first came to the attention of LWB-Medical, her orphanage suspected she had anemia but her test results were confusing. We sent her to a large hospital in Chengdu for more specialized testing. From these tests, we found out that Wendy has been diagnosed with a very rare type of thalassemia (an inherited condition that affects the blood). Wendy needs monthly blood transfusions in order to live.
Wendy is a very sick baby who is in need of help. She needs $1000 to provide her with transfusions for 3 months, as well as travel costs and care to and from the hospital. To help contribute to her medical costs, please visit her sponsor page.
