Timotio, 21, is studying science and aspires to be a doctor or nurse. But with worsening heart disease symptoms, including a racing heart and breathlessness, daily life has been hard. “I am unhappy because I have no energy to work, study and play with my friends,” Timotio said. Early in the year Timotio, who lives in Baucau, east of Dili, was referred to our volunteer medical team; on Monday he arrives in Australia, where he will have a high-tech mitral balloon procedure at Eastern Heart Clinic in Sydney. We’re looking forward to welcoming Timotio; and giving him good health to chase his dream of becoming a health professional and helping others.
