Shen Li, born 1 July 2004, with Tetralogy of Fallot (4 heart abnormalities) & a Malformed Trachea

He is now 6 months old, and weighs slightly over 4kg. He requires open-heart surgery that will cost upwards of 50,000rmb (about US$6250). We are in need of funds to support his medical bill. Currently, through the sale of christmas cards, and generous donations from friends, we have raised about 25,000rmb. Surgery will be performed at a heart hospital in Beijing, as soon as he gains more weight. The doctors have warned us that the surgery will most likely be successful, but that he will be very vulnerable to infection after surgery, and may not survive. We hope for the best !
