From birth he was on the waiting list at the Steve Biko Hospital after being diagnosed at with Pulmonary Atresia with a Ventricular Sepatal Defect VSD and Hypoplastic pulmonary arteries.
He was referred to WSPCCA where Dr. Milner assessed him. Thanks to funds raised by Jenna Clifford and her Dream Big initiative, his operation was able to go ahead and on the 26th October 2009, he was taken to theatre.
His grateful parents say that it was amazing to see the difference after the success of his operation. Thinus was no longer a “blue boy” and now has a beautiful pink complexion. He will need another
operation as time goes on, for which funds once again need to be raised.
