Little Red Scarf is in Lanzhou, Gansu province and provides financial support and encouragement to children suffering from congenital heart disease. In addition, they provide families with post-operative care and help the children sustain a healthy lifestyle.
My name is Guang Feng. I am naughty so many people don’t like me. They don’t know me well. I love everything around me, and I am curious about everything.
I was diagnosed with congenital heart disease. With the help of Little Red Scarf, I was admitted to the hospital and began receiving examinations and treatment before the surgery. I don’t like shots. It’s true and you will see how scared I was when the nurses came, but they always won.
The operation went smoothly, but I had to stay in the ICU for 48 hours. Like all children, I do not like the ICU because there’s no mum or dad. I had had a fever when I was discharged from the ICU. I did not feel well and was frequently unconscious. But I heard someone calling me. I learned later that people from Little Red Scarf came to see me. Sister Sarah brought stickers. She said I was brave. I like them, and they always keep smiling.
My fever has finally gone. The stickers brought by Sister Sarah always surprise me. Her purse is magic because it always has stickers for me. After my operation, I became stronger every day. Whenever I have an intravenous infusion, I casually cross one leg over the other. The nurses always laugh at my strange posture. I am pleased to make them laugh.
They say I am brave, and I like to hear that because they encourage me a lot. I also like to be as happy as the other people. Thank you to everyone who supported me.
