Moira Lee, 52, cannot thank Sai Prema Foundation enough for its generosity in allowing her grandchild to now live a normal life.

As a grandmother she knows the pain her grandchild was going through and could not bear to see her suffering in sickness.

Mrs Lee was heartbroken after her eight-year-old grand-daughter was diagnosed with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD).

Skylar Lee was admitted at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital last year in April and this was when Sai Prema Foundation Fiji, provided Skylar with medical treatment.

“I’m forever grateful for the foundation’s work in saving lives,” Mrs Lee said.

“I never knew what CHD meant and it created fear in me to lose Skylar because all hope seemed lost. Skylar also suffered from severe tonsillitis, which caused more fear because I wondered how I could not help my grandaughter should her heart fail.”

Mrs Lee said Skylar was a sickly child and usually suffered body aches and would tire so easily.

“She always got upset that she was not able to run and play with her friends.

“Skylar kept saying, Grandma, what is happening to me and please help me.”

Ms Lee thanked the Sai Prema Foundation for its free service for Skylar’s successful surgery. Skylar also thanked the foundation for its help.

“I would not be standing in front of you without the foundation’s help,” she said.
