Hi, my name is Joshua and I am six years old. I was born with a sick heart and I was flown to Vancouver in a helicopter. I had surgery on my heart when I was 7 days old.


My mom and I visit BC Children’s Hospital a lot. Sometimes I go for surgery and sometimes just for checkups. The doctors know that I am going to need a new heart valve when I get older.

When my mom and I go to the hospital, YANA helps us to get there.

My mom says that YANA gives us a home away from home.
