How World Pediatric Project Helps
Patient Referral Program:
Julieta was at school one day when she felt her heart beating fast and experienced dizziness. A cardiologist later diagnosed her symptoms as Wolff Parkinson White syndrome, a disorder of the electrical system of the heart. After waiting many years for treatment that was not available in El Salvador, Julieta traveled to the United States for for a relatively simple procedure. She was able to walk out of the hospital the same day as her procedure, celebrating with Coke and chocolate, which had been forbidden previously due to caffeine. Julieta will no longer need to take any medication and can thrive into adulthood!
