Our Story

Temidire (Temi) was a perfectly healthy child and 4-year-old girl. In early March 2023, Temi was having a cough, and she was taken to urgent care. There was no x-ray tech available to take the chest x-ray at that time, and she was treated for pneumonia since every sign presented pneumonia. She was taken back home and watched as her cough improves, like 60%. On Friday, March 17 and 18, she threw up once but wasn’t running temperature. She started complaining about abdominal pain on the 19th of march, and she was taken to the children hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in the emergency on March 20, 2023, to be cared for. She was admitted because at the time, her heart EF (Ejection fraction) was at 14%. She was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy.

Temi is the last of three siblings, a brother and a sister. She has no previous history of heart problems, and no one in the family has a related history.

Due to the severity of her case, she was listed as Status 1A for a heart transplant. On April 25, 2023, Temi undergoes open-heart surgery for Berlin LVAD and centriMAg RVAD placement in her heart while we await a donor.

Temi currently lives at the children’s hospital in Minneapolis. We are campaigning to raise funds to help Temi’s family to cover some part of the cost of treatment. Please, any donation to COTA in honor of Temi would be greatly appreciated. Update will be available as we have it.

The Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) helps children and young adults who need a life-saving transplant by providing fundraising assistance and family support. COTA is the nation’s only fundraising organization solely dedicated to raising life-saving dollars in honor of transplant-needy children and young adults. 100% of each contribution made to COTA in honor of our patients helps meet transplant-related expenses. COTA’s services are free to our families, and gifts to COTA are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Latest update on Temidire Health,

On June 18th, 2023, Temi’s parent (Oluwatoyin and Abiodun) received a call at about 1:30am and they find a donor that matched Temi.

They were both so happy and give their consent immediately. Temi’s team commenced treatment and preparation for surgery immediately. Temi received the gift of a new heart and she’s doing good.

Temi was discharged on the 26th of June 2024. Temi has been in the hospital since March 20th, 2023, which makes it fifteen months of hospital stay. We are so happy that God makes this possible after a long wait.

We appreciate the family God use to make Temi live again, we pray that God will give them fortitude to bear their loss. We hope that someday, Temi will have chance to see them in person and say thank you for helping to give live a second chance. we also thank all Temi’s team for their hard work, dedication and show of love, we appreciate all family and friend that stood by during those time, we appreciate all our donor. Thank you all for your prayers and contribution towards Temi’s health.

God bless you all
