Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Alina.
Alina is ten years old. She was born with heart disease.
“At age seven, Alina became tired and sickly. Doctors found she had congenital heart disease, and prescribed therapy and a special diet. For two years my daughter felt good. It seemed as if the trouble was over. Doctors even allowed Alina to dance and ice skate. Last summer my daughter had a growth spurt and shot up to 161 cm. It was then she began to complain of shortness of breath and pain. A medical exam showed an increase in the heart defect. The defect can be closed without opening the chest, but this operation requires a large sum of money. I do not work for health reasons, I have two children."
