She’s four and a half years old and was born with a congenital heart defect that wasn’t discovered until she was three years old.
If you ran into this beautiful girl outside of the hospital, you probably wouldn’t even notice that she had a heart defect.
It wouldn’t be until you saw her run, play, and laugh that you would notice how quickly she became tired. A year and a half from now you would notice it when she wouldn’t be able to walk to school with the rest of the children. When she’s at school, you would notice her not having the strength to stay awake in class.
But tomorrow Parzheen is being given the surgery that’s going to change all of that!
It will let her run to school. It will let her interact with her classmates at school. It will give her the chance to try out that jump rope that she’s never had the strength to conquer. It will save her life.
Parzheen goes into surgery in the next few hours. Stay with us as we follow her story! If you're on Twitter this week be sure to use the #RemedyMission hashtag to describe all the good news coming out of Iraq this week via @preemptivelove.
