Jeremy Pascua was hospitalized when he was only six months old with the flu and pneumonia and was subsequently diagnosed with a heart condition — cardiomyopathy, or an enlarged heart. He has to take medically prescribed supplements and prescriptions, which We Care subsidizes.
His heart condition has improved dramatically. At the beginning of his illness his ejection fraction (the percentage of blood that is pumped out of a filled ventricle with each heartbeat) was at 19 percent — normal is 60 percent. Jeremy, now four years old, is still improving!
The family also has been given the rental management responsibilities of a Bounce Around inflatable party activity, The Castle. A portion of the proceeds from the rentals goes into Jeremy’s account.
