(CMR) Team Nolan programme, the pediatric arm of the Cayman Heart Fund, raises public awareness and provides financial assistance to families in Cayman when their child is born with a congenital heart defect, assisting them with expenses associated with urgent pediatric cardiology healthcare. Financial aid may be granted, for example, to assist in the following instances:
- accommodation or airfare;
- assistance with paying for utilities, food, etc.; or
- assisting with taking necessary time off work.
Over the holidays, Team Nolan was honored to visit and present a donation to a family in need. Baby Mirella was born with Tetralogy of Fallot (a combination of four congenital abnormalities. The four defects include a ventricular septal defect (VSD), pulmonary valve stenosis, a misplaced aorta and a thickened right ventricular wall [right ventricular hypertrophy]) and Down Syndrome. She has been hospitalized at Health City for over 4 months after many Heart Surgeries.
Ailian Evans, CHF Board Member & Founder of Team Nolan, said, as a heart mom it is so rewarding to see that with our efforts and fund-raising initiatives in the loving memory of our heart angel son, we are helping others in need. I know Nolan is proud of the legacy that we are creating. I liked spending time with the family and giving emotional support on their journey as heart parents. I can for sure say that Nolan has taught me compassion, resilience and to never give up.
