You Are Helping Save Victor’s Life!!!

On March 31, we donated $5,000 to the Gift of Life charity to help children born with heart defects. The donation was raised thanks to (i) purchases of my book and (ii) sponsorships from surgeons, clinics and medical device manufacturers.

Today, I learned that our donation will help Victor Manuel Saravia, a 12-month old boy from El Salvador that is very ill. Here is a recent picture of Victor:

Victor was born with severe congenital heart disease. His caring father (a mechanic) and mother earn just $9 per day. Although Victor looks healthy, he required a complex cardiac procedure just 30 days after birth.

Little Victor is now preparing for the second of three surgeries that will hopefully save his life. Our donation is helping fund this operation which will take place on July 6 at Driscoll Hospital in Corpus Cristi, Texas. According to Gift of Life, Dr. John Morales (shown below) is Victor’s surgeon.

Driscoll Children's Hospital - John Morales, MD

Please pray for Victor and his family! Again, thanks so much for your help!

Keep on tickin’ Victor!
