My girlfriend and best friend in Nicaragua is in dire need of a heart surgery at a young age of 24. Her name is Sheyla Chavez and she is suffering from ASD. Atrial septal defect (ASD) is a form of congenital heart defect that enables blood flow between two compartments of the heart called the left and right atria. Since the oxygenated blood is passing back the the right atria, her brain and body does not receive enough oxygen. Her chances of a normal life or even survival are low without surgery. She has already suffered a minor stroke and has spent weeks in the hospital. She lives in the beautiful, but impoverished country of Nicaragua and it is nearly impossible to afford surgery let alone the doctors visits and medicine needed. She works a full time job and makes less than $2.00 an hour. She is only 24 years old and deserves to live a long and beautiful life. Minus this defect, her heart is full of love and always trying to help those in need, Now it is her time to be helped. Not only will you be helping to save a life a of a beautiful person, but you are also helping her 2 children grow up with they're mother. Thank you for the support.
