'My dream is to be a doctor one day'

Jeca Pereira

Tonight the thoughts of all of us at East Timor Hearts Fund are with little Jeca and his mum Marquita. Tomorrow Jeca, 11, will undergo a mitral balloon procedure at MonashHeart. We believe he is the smallest and youngest patient to have the procedure in Australia. Jeca is gravely ill, he can walk no more than 100 metres without pain and breathlessness, but he has big plans for when he is well again and can go back to school. "I would like to be a doctor one day. That is my dream!” he told us.
