For some people it takes them years, sometimes even a lifetime before they know what they want from life or where they are headed. This little amazing girl figured out her purpose of life since birth. Virsaviya Borun-Goncharova who is now six years old, has been through a lot in her short years of life; probably more than others who have lived longer.
Virsaviya who is from Russia and she suffers from a rare heart disease which caused her to be born with her heart outside of her chest. The condition she suffers from is called Pantalogy of Cantrell, which comes with several other conditions such as missing parts of abdominal muscles, missing chest bones and no diaphragm. Her sweet little heart is only covered by one thin layer of skin.
Sweet little Virsaviya is now in USA seeking treatment, she was turned down by many doctors from all over the world, when finally a hospital in Boston agreed to give her treatment. The blessed hospital is Boston’s Children’s Hospital, I am so amazed that all the other hospitals turned her down, this could be due to the fact they couldn’t undertake this sort of treatment due to their skill levels. After many tests done by Boston’s Children’s Hospital they made a decision to not go ahead with the surgery because of the high blood pressure in Virsaviya’s pulmonary artery.
Virsaviya’s mother who is a single parent does not have the financial means to pay for all of Virsaviya’s medical treatment expenses, so she started up a fund-raiser for Virsaviya, which can be found at here: Viraviya – You Caring Fund Raiser. The doctors have told Virsaviya’s mother that they have to wait two years before they can go ahead with the surgery, only if Virsaviya’s blood pressure improves. So make a prayer for this Angel.
She has high spirits and great ambitions in life, “I like to draw Jesus, ponies and angels. . .I don’t go to the ballet but I want to do it at home.” if this quote doesn’t melt your heart then nothing will.
It is not easy for a single parent to see their beloved babies go through such struggles in life, let alone since birth. Virsaviya has such an amazing mother who has stuck by her through out the entire time. This is what family is all about; being there throughout the tough times and the good times. God has blessed this little girl, and amazing things will come from her when she is older. She will reward this world with her talents, and not forgetting rewarding her ever loving mother.
Please make a prayer for this sweet innocent Angel and spread her story, to help with the fund-raiser.
