Rafael is 12 years old from the country of Honduras. He needs to come to St. Louis for life-saving cardiac surgery this year.
Rafael has supraventricular tachycardia, a cardiac condition that causes episodes of very rapid heartbeat and, if left untreated, can weaken the heart muscles and create more severe heart issues in the long term.
The treatment he needs is called electrophysiology procedure, which requires equipment that is not available in the country of Honduras.
Rafael is not able to run or play soccer with his friends for fear of triggering a tachycardia episode. He is also unable to drink sodas or eat chocolate.
Honduras is one of World Pediatric Project's 13 partner countries in Central America and the Eastern Caribbean.
