My nephew Luca has HLHS, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, which means that he was born with half a heart. This was diagnosed before he was born and he had his first operation within days after birth. Miraculously is now 10 years old and well enough to attend school.
Unfortunately the 3 operations he had since birth have not been completely successfual. He does not get enough oxygen to his brain which often leaves him tired and often ill.
To give Luca the oxygen he needs for a normal life, we need to buy a Healing Dives 28"Hyperbaric Chamber 3psi. This is similar to a decompression unit that divers use - it will help to increase the oxygen levels in his blood. He has also been diagnosed as with asbergers and yet with all these challenges he is going to a main stream school and is working hard to live a life similar to my children.
Even though Luca has been through so much trauma and faces so many challenges, he is going to a mainstream school. His parents continue to work incredibly hard to keep him alive and well enough to enjoy life.
Please help us to buy the Hyperbric Chamber so that Luca's body and brain can get the oxygen it requires.
Every contribution will help make a difference to this fun loving little boy and his precious parents.
I would love to help them raise funds to relieve the financial burden as I can't do anything other than pray for this little family.
