Toddler in Desperate Need of a New Heart

An 11-month-old boy was hospitalized Wednesday and in desperate need of a heart transplant. While his parents hold out hope a donor can be found, they were also facing financial hardships.

Baby Wa’set’s mom was recently laid off from her job amid mounting medical bills. A website has been set up to help cover the boy’s day-to-day medical costs.
