We’re excited! Our next patient Rosalina, 22, arrives in Australia tomorrow. The young mum has mitral stenosis, a narrowing of the heart valve caused by the rheumatic fever she contracted as a child.
She’ll be having a high-tech mitral balloon procedure at Eastern Heart Clinic in Sydney.
Debilitating symptoms have left 22-year-old Rosalina too weak to play with baby Alisia, and unable to study and work.
“I can’t wait to be healthy. I want to see my baby girl grow up and be there for her,” Rosalina told us.
Look out for more updates soon!
