Alexa was very sick for her first two years of life, cared for by her aunt. Her father disappeared after Alexa was born, and her mother abandoned her at one.

The public hospital in Santiago discovered that Alexa had cardiac insufficiency, and her case was referred to CEDIMAT. Alexa’s surgery was immediately prepared, and the
David Ortiz Children’s Fund took care of all of the costs.

Alexa is now playing, growing and has started to walk. Her aunt reports she is a lively, happy kid.
