Yovanna is a 4 yr old little girl from Cajamarca, Peru.(see her photo in the previous post, below) She needs heart surgery to repair a defective aortic valve. Eliana has brought Yovanna and her Mama to Lima, to the Childrens Hospital. The Luz Fund is helping with the expenses. An old friend of Chuck, Betsy Tirado and her medical group from New York City, Heart Care International will be in Lima next week doing heart surgeries on children who qualify for the care. A decision will be made this weekend on whether or not Yovanna will be a candidate for surgery. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
If you are in Lima, and have O rh+ blood we could use a couple donors. If you want to help with expenses, consider a check to:
