11 years old with critical heart disease - help for Jeca

Jeca Pereira

This gorgeous little boy, Jeca, 11, is now on his way to Australia for a life-saving heart procedure. Jeca is critically ill, with severe mitral stenosis. We're very hopeful that with the best care in the world, from our friends at MonashHeart in Melboure, he'll soon be running and jumping like all of his friends. Jeca, his mum Marquita, and Alarico from Bairo Pite Clinic arrive tomorrow. Watch out for more news!
PS: Jeca featured in the  recent excellent story by ABC TV's Foreign Correspondent. Here's a link (Jeca is at around 24.30).
