Following two years of agony, a mother of ten is relieved that her daughter has finally undergone successful heart surgery.
Four-year-old Litia Ciocala from Lau was detected with a heart defect two years ago.
Her mother, Kiti Tamanalevu says she went through a lot of challenges while looking after her daughter.
“She was only 2 when she was diagnosed with heart disease so from then I never let her out of my sight, I ensure that she stays with me every single day. At times I feel guilty seeing what Litia went through every day. I thank the almighty God for this hospital that brought this medical team.”
Four-year-old Litia Ciocala is among the thirteen children who underwent successful heart surgery at the Sai Sanjeevani Children’s Heart Hospital.
The surgeries were conducted by Heart 4 Kids team from Starship Children’s Hospital in Auckland.
