Little Mikaylah was recruited into the study when she was only 10 months old. Mikhaylah’s family live in the northern suburbs of Cape Town, quite a distance away from the Red Cross Children’s Hospital. Mikhaylah was diagnosed with her heart problem shortly after she was born, and her surgery to ‘fix’ the holes in her heart is much needed to contribute to a healthy full life. Mikhaylah is still awaiting her surgery, and her family are looking forward to her health improving. In the meantime, she is growing, healthy and active.
