The mother of the heart patient expressed her gratitude towards Wanna One in her handwritten letter:
To Wanna One:
How can I express how thankful I am? There is nothing else to say but thank you and thank you. I am ***’s mother. He received pulmonary valve surgery on August 29th of this year. As the mother of a child with congenital heart disease, it hurts me that he must receive numerous surgeries. This is the third time he is receiving open heart surgery, so it was even harder than before. Even so, we will live with a thankful mind towards the Wanna One members as he was able to return to his life.
Thank you. This was all thanks to The Korea Heart Foundation and Wanna One’s support. I will support your music as well.
I will help my child grow healthily and raise him to become someone who can repay this generosity in the future.
Thank you and I hope that you will be healthy and continue to experience success with your music. Thank you.

The members began (the campaign) united in mind. We have that it would be helpful.
