Baby Yusuf (now 27 days old) has a severe heart condition called Hypoplastic left heart syndrome and needs your help to raise the funds to pay for his next surgery. He requires 3 surgeries to help with this condition. The first one is done within 2 weeks of life, the second at 4 months old and the third at 3-4yrs old. Yusuf was born in Trinidad WI on 16th October 2017 and was flown via Air ambulance to the Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Florida on the 27th October 2017. He had his 1st surgery on the 2nd November 2017 at 17days old and is currently recovering in the Peadiatric ICU/PICU.
The cost of this surgery is exceedingly high. We were able to raise some funds previously via our other GoFundMe page and funds obtained back home. But our hospital bills now exceed this and we also have to raise funds again for his second upcoming surgery at 4months old.
The reason for this 2nd GoFundMe page is that a lot of people preferred to donate in US currency versus the sterling currency with the previous page and also now that we are in the US, its easier to use these funds to pay the hospital directly.
Yusuf continues to amaze his doctors and nurses with his progress after surgery. Thank to all that continue to pray for his recovery and well-being.
