Kevin Real- Heart Surgery

Kevin is a wonderful 15 year old young man who is in desperate need for his heart to be repaired.  His Tricuspid valve is missing or severly deformed which blocks the blood flow.  He lives in a small village in North West Nicaragua with no means to provide for his medical condition.  The Vision Nicaragua medical team, led by Ray and Cathe Burleson, have been working tirelessly to get him accepted into a program for this surgery.  After many denials and one option that would be well over $100,000, Kevin has finally been accepted by a group in the Cayman Islands.  The medical group will provide the surgery for around $25,000 plus transportation and housing throughout his recovery.   Please support Kevin so he can have the opportunity to experience life as a normal, healthy young man.    His life depends on it!!
