Mauricio was operated in the United States and survived a complex heart surgery.
He is with his fantastic host family and doing very well. He is crawling everywhere.
Saving Mauricio will not save Haiti. But we all know that all of Haiti's babies deserve medical care whether it is basic or complex.
If Mauricio can be helped with a serious congenital heart defect, we should be able to help thousands of Haitian babies that are dying from medical problems that are preventable and much less "complex" to treat.
The collective will has to be there to do as much good as can be done.
