いちくんを救う会

A Little Boy, Ichi (1 year old) Needs Heart Transplant

The cost of JPY 295 million is needed for receiving a heart transplant surgery abroad. Save the Boy by making a donation! Targeted amount of this fund-raising: JPY 295 million (equivalent to USD 2.3 million).

Ichi is a Japanese Boy who lives in Adachi-ku, Tokyo Prefecture.
He was diagnosed to have a type of heart disease called dilated cardiomyopathy(DCM).
DCM is a condition in which the walls of the heart is made with undeveloped muscle so it cannot contract properly. People who have DCM tend to lose their live within young age. It is an incurable disease.

A heart transplant is the only option for Ichi to survive.
However in Japan, the availability of heart donors is very low and Ichi’s parents have decided to undergo his heart transplant surgery overseas.

In order to receive the transplant surgery, Ichi and his parents need to bear a large amount of money.
Therefore, we have organized a fund-raising group to support the costs and expenses they need immediately.

Please lend your hand to save the little Boy with the incurable disease.

Please help Ichi and give him a bright future!
