Today we want to tell you the story of a family suffering with congenital heart disease, the story of a boy and his devoted father.
Tien Anh was born with a serious congenital heart disease and when he was just a baby boy, his mother decided to leave him. His loving father took on both roles and has been doing his best to give him the life that he deserves.
We recently had the opportunity to visit their home and meet Tien Anh, a very polite 8 year-old boy. “I can’t go far” he said, “I feel too weak”. He told us that he had to leave school one day because he suddenly fainted in the classroom. These are just a few examples of what these poor children have to go through.
Tien Anh’s father couldn’t stop crying. Just thinking that his son could leave him anytime was devastating. “I love him,” he said, “Wherever I go, I will carry him, we go everywhere together. I can’t imagine my life without him. If he dies, I die.” Luckily Tien Anh’s father remarried an honest woman who loves them both very much. They are doing all they can to give him a better life.
After our visit we didn’t wait one second and took him directly to the hospital. He was able to have his surgery and we all look forward to see how he recovers and starts living a happy, healthy life! Tien Anh’s father gives his deepest thanks to those who saved his son and gave him a new beginning.
There are thousands of kids like Tien Anh who dream of a happy and healthy life. Help us make their wishes come true and donate today!
