IKF Wonderfund Miracle Story: Gael

Gael Aquino’s story powerfully illustrates the mission of IKF Wonderfund, a program of Jackson Health Foundation. Gael, a two-year-old boy with congenital heart disease from the Dominican Republic, was able to receive life-saving medical treatment at Holtz Children’s Hospital thanks to generous supporters from the IKF Wonderfund that has improved and saved the lives of over 700 children worldwide.

IKF Wonderfund is a program of Jackson Health Foundation that helps critically ill children from countries around the world gain access to life-saving and life changing medical treatments that are not available in their home country. Every year, the IKF Wonderfund Circle of Heroes Luncheon brings community leaders and philanthropists together to join the circle and raise awareness about the difficulties faced by children from around the world who seek access to healthcare in their home countries. This year we are celebrating twelve years of miracles made possible by our Circle of Heroes Members. Through their support, hundreds of children with healthcare needs beyond the scope of their local hospitals receive the best care possible at Holtz Children’s Hospital.

Since its inception in 2001, the IKF Wonderfund has raised over $22M enabling them to assist over 700 children from more than 50 countries, with their medical care. Thanks to the generosity of donors, the majority of IKF Wonderfund children are growing, or have grown up, to live vibrant and happy lives. For inquiries about table sponsorships, to purchase tickets, or any other questions, please contact Yolanda Abuabara-Tappen at yolanda.abuabaratap@jhsmiami.org or call 305-585-GIVE (4483).
