Seven-year-old Thansly is full of life and spunk. He loves to bike around his neighborhood in Petite Rivière de l’Artibonite where he lives with his Aunt Thelia. He also loves going to school and says his favorite subject is math.
Thalia has been happily caring for Thansly ever since his mother immigrated to Chile to find work.
Recently, Thansly became very sick.
His whole body was swollen and achy. Thelia took Thansly to the Deschapelles dispensary where they prescribed him medicine. When his health didn’t improve, Thelia carried Thansly to the hospital, as he was too weak to walk on his own.
HAS’ pediatrics team diagnosed Thansly with a kidney problem and began administering him a careful balance of medications.
“Our hearts are happy because our little Thansly is healthy again! I want to say thank you—to everyone who gives support to the hospital. It would have been a great, great loss for me to lose Thansly. I was crying a lot. The staff here has put a smile on my face again because I see my child is okay.”
