We are counting down the days until our new patient, Joanina, arrives. Joanina, 19, is due to fly in on Monday and is having a mitral balloon procedure at MonashHeart in Melbourne next Thursday.
We are very grateful to all of the individual donors who have helped to make Joanina's treatment possible, and also to our foundation sponsor Toll Remote Logistics, for assisting with airfares; MonashHeart for its ongoing support and medical supplier Medtronic, which has generously donated the medical balloon which will be used in Joanina's procedure.
If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to assist Joanina and other patients, please go to our secure online fundraising page http://www.givenow.com.au/easttimorhearts. And please keep an eye on this blog for further updates.
