Camilo's Story

Five year-old Camilo’s parents had a strong suspicion that something was wrong with his health. They brought Camilo to a pediatrician who detected a heart murmur and referred Camilo to a cardiologist. The cardiologist diagnosed a serious structural malformation that was requiring Camilo’s heart to do four times the workload of a normal heart. Best Doctors confirmed the pressing need for reconstructive surgery of Camilo’s heart and identified an expert physician who would be able to help.

Today, Camilo plays actively and is able to enjoy his family and his life with a heart that does what it is supposed to do.  He has no remaining heart disease and will gladly tell you that he now has an extraordinary, “SUPER heart!”
