A doctor confirmed it. Jing Wen had a hole in his heart and needed immediate surgery to survive. But his parents didn't have the money for the hospital bill. See how you helped this baby get well. Read Transcript


Terry: IN CHINA, IT IS A TRADITION

FOR FAMILIES TO THROW A

PARTY AFTER A BABY'S FIRST

MONTH OF LIFE.

MR. AND MRS. CHOW HAD DOUBLE

THE REASON TO CELEBRATE

BECAUSE THE COUPLE HAD TWIN

BOYS.

BUT SIX MONTHS LATER, THERE

WAS A PROBLEM.

HE WASN'T GROWING.

I WAS AFRAID THAT MAYBE

THERE WAS SOME KIND OF

PROBLEM WITH MY BABY'S

HEART.

Terry: A DOCTOR

CONFIRMED IT.

JING WIN HAD A HOLE IN HIS

HEART AND NEEDED IMMEDIATE

SURGERY TO SURVIVE.

MR. CHOW FOUND A JOB AS A

DELIVERY MAN.

HE WORKED 10 HOURS A DAY AND

SAVED EVERYTHING HE COULD.

EVEN SO, WITH AN INCOME OF

ONLY $110 A MONTH, IT WOULD

BE YEARS BEFORE HE HAD

ENOUGH TO AFFORD HEART

SURGERY FOR JING WEN.

I WAS UNDER SO MUCH

PRESSURE THAT I COULDN'T

SLEEP AT NIGHT.

I STARTED WORRYING THAT WE

MIGHT LOSE JING WEN AFTER

ALL.

Terry: THERE SEEMED TO

BE NO SOLUTION UNTIL THEY

HEARD THAT CBN WAS COMING TO

TOWN TO HELP CHILDREN LIKE

THEIR SON.

CBN PAID THE BALANCE OF WHAT

THE FAMILY STILL NEEDED TO

MAKE JING WEN'S SURGERY

POSSIBLE.

WHEN I FIRST HEARD ABOUT

CBN, IT GAVE ME HOPE.

I TOLD MYSELF THAT WE HAD

MET THE BEST PEOPLE IN THE

WORLD.

AND I TOOK MY BABY TO THE

HOSPITAL IMMEDIATELY.

Terry: A DOCTOR

REPAIRED THE HOLE IN JING

WEN'S HEART AND REPOSITIONED

HIS ARTERY.

AFTER THIS SUCCESSFUL

SURGERY, THE BABY FINALLY

STARTED TO GROW.

THE GOOD NEWS CALLED FOR

ANOTHER PARTY.

AND THIS TIME IT WAS IN

HONOR OF JING WEN'S SECOND

CHANCE ON LIFE.

CBN HOSTED THE CELEBRATION,

COMPLETE WITH CAKE AND A

YEAR SUPPLY OF VITAMINS TO

HELP WITH JING WEN'S

DEVELOPMENT.

THANKS TO YOUR HELP, JING

WEN HAS CAUGHT UP WITH HIS

BROTHER.

I'M SO HAPPY TO SEE HOW FAST

HE IS GROWING.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR

EVERYTHING.

YOU MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR

JING WEN TO SEE ANOTHER

DAY.
