Emie underwent life-saving heart surgery.

During Emie’s procedure, doctors used a catheter probe to plug the hole near her heart with a small device. Blood can no longer leak through it, and Emie should now be able to lead a full life with no threat from her condition.

Emie’s mother shared: “I would like to say thank you to everyone who helped my daughter get the care she has been waiting for!”

Emie is a three-year-old girl from Haiti. She lives with her parents in a small city on Haiti’s northeastern border with the Dominican Republic. She enjoys listening to music and going to church with her family.

Emie was born with a condition called patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), in which blood leaks between the major artery and vein connected to the heart. This has led to heart failure, leaving Emie feeling sick and short of breath.

Fortunately, our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, is helping Emie to receive treatment. On September 9th, doctors will use a catheter to plug the hole between the artery and the vein so that blood can flow normally. Now, Emie’s family needs help to raise $1,500 towards her procedure and care.

Emie’s mother shared, “we are excited that once our daughter’s heart is healed, we can start sending her to preschool with the other children.”
