Create a fundraiser like this

The family and friends of Migdalia are uniting to raise money to help Izzy with his upcoming open heart surgery. Please show your support!

This is Isaiah Nathaniel Nieves

He is my God Son. Who I love dearly!! I'm reaching out to my Mary Kay sisters, family ,friends and the community for your support.

On 10/18/2006 “Izzy” was born with

Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS),


Translation?
He only has half a heart.



In his short life, he's had 3 open-heart surgeries

to make the half that does work, work like a full one would.


His mother, Migdalia Medina and the doctors that care for him

have made great efforts to create a normal life for Izzy

and have made great strides in the process. She is a single mother, sole provider and primary care giver of Izzy.

We are running out of time and need your help.!!!


With the heart condition he has, his aorta is very narrow. They have worked in the past to repair it with the previous three surgeries

plus a few catheterizations in between, but those were all temporary solutions.


Unfortunately, in healing from those surgeries,
scar tissue began to twist two of the arteries under his aorta.


This has begun to cut blood flow and oxygen to his brain.He has started having frequent headaches and
his doctors cant wait any longer for this upcoming surgery.

On May 30, at the Children’s Hospital of New York Presbyterian,his doctors will replace his aorta with an artificial tube.

But Migdalia needs OUR help.!


Her job has not and will not pay her for the time
she will need to be with Izzy during his recovery after surgery.



This is where we can help by donating, spreading the word and prayer!

That said, We are asking for donations with all the proceeds going to Migdalia and Izzy. This will allow her the time she needs to be by his bed side in the hospital until his family can see him smile and run around again. This will allow her to focus all her energy on his recovery, and not on making ends meet.


I believe, What we put in the lives of others comes back to ours full circle and more abundantly.

The power is in the numbers! Lets stand together as a community to give this young soul the opportunity to enjoy what so many of us take for granted. LIFE!.


Our goal is to raise money and more importantly Awareness of this increasing diese in children Born in the united states. If you are not able to donate we ask for your prayers during this time.


Words have saved lives, including my own And with the whole heart that we have,Lets pay it forward!!!



Thank you.
