Amazing what a working heart will do for your smile.
Happy to announce that your coffee has successfully funded another life changing surgery!
Khin is a 17 year old from Burma who was born with a condition called Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), a debilitating congenital condition where your blood vessels are inappropriately connected to your heart.
In TOF, there are 4 main circulatory problems:
These 4 things combine to make it really hard to get oxygen to your body, and eventually leads to heart failure.
Fortunately Khin had her heart repaired and will be able to live a normal life!
Since her surgery, she is reportedly much more active and no longer constantly dizzy. "I still want to become a teacher and teach students from grades four to eight", she says.
