Richmond's Open-Heart Surgery

On November 9th 2017 I will be having open-heart surgery.  We recently discovered that I was born with an abnormal aortic valve that has gradually developed a severe leak and prevents the maximum amount of blood from getting to my heart (for more information visit: 

This has been a challenging journey for our family to say the least. But we’re so thankful that the medical field is in a time and place that gives us the opportunity to fix it. The doctors say recovery should take about 3-4 weeks. 

2017 has been a year full of triumphs and challenges for us. But through it all we know that God is with us, our family and friends are with us, our incredible surgeon is with us, and we are believing for VICTORY! During this time we ask for your prayers, good thoughts, and support. We are asking for donations to help towards the cost of medical bills and recovery. Every little bit helps.

Thank you for your support and looking forward to reporting back with a victory report and recovery updates very soon.


Richmond, Beatriz, & Sebastian
