Unfortunately, Luis Perez died after a successful heart operation for a very difficult congenital condition. This surgery was made possible through the financial support of Dharma Trading Co. He was moved from our regular hospital in Santa Cruz where the operation occurred (Clinica Incor) to the public Children's Hospital and he suffered an infection that killed him. All are very saddened by this and will not have this type of transfer occur again. Unfortunately, it was to save on the costs of the post-operative care that the transfer occurred.
Luis was a 6 month old baby.
