Alejandra lives in San Salvador with her parents and two older siblings. She is very talkative and social, and loves to play with her siblings. When Alejandra was 2 months old she was diagnosed with heart disease so severe, that she was in need of urgent surgery. In an effort to speed up the process, her parents got a loan for an echocardiogram and medicines. For two years, Alejandras parents and the doctors desperately struggled to keep her alive. Their efforts paid off, she had her surgery with the next Heart Care International visit and Alejandra has recovered beautifully.
