Oliver – Age 4 – Cuba

After trying to have a baby for a very long time, Oliver’s parents had their miracle baby! They were so happy and grateful. Unfortunately, 4-year-old Oliver was diagnosed with an atrial septal defect (ASD), a hole between the upper chambers of his heart when he was just 8 months old. His parents were told he needed surgery to repair the defect. Oliver waited for his surgery at home in Cuba, but there were many patients who needed cardiac care – the wait became too long, and he became very weak. HeartGift was happy to expedite the timeline and help by providing Oliver’s free, life-saving heart surgery. After a successful surgery at Children’s Hospital New Orleans, Oliver now has so much energy and wants to be a superhero when he grows up!
