Baby Victor Has Left The Hospital!!!

By Adam Pick on July 24, 2010

Great news everybody!!!

Several weeks ago, I learned that our $5,000 donation to the Gift of Life was going to help pay for the heart surgery of Victor Saravia, a 14-month old baby boy from El Salvador.

Today, I’m very happy to report that Victor is doing incredibly well after his complex heart surgery. Rob Raylman, a director from Gift of Life, wrote the following to me…

Little Victor is out of the hospital. Amazing!!! This little boy who did not have much chance of surviving the summer is now healthy enough to leave the hospital after his life-saving surgery. THANK YOU TO EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU ON THIS EMAIL THAT STEPPED FORWARD AND ACTED TO  SAFE HIS LIFE!  Tonight when you put your head on your pillow, think about how great it is to know you gave breath to this child and huge smiles to his family. Nothing left to say but…GOD BLESS YOU! – Rob Raylman

Again, thank you so much for purchasing The Patient’s Guide To Heart Valve Surgery. Because of your purchase, we collectively provided Victor with the possibility of a healthy heart and a healthy life!

Keep on tickin’ Victor!
Adam
