Rosenie underwent cardiac surgery.

During surgery, the hole in Rosenie’s heart was closed with a patch, and the muscular blockage in her valve was removed. She should be able to lead a normal life with no further risk from this condition.

She says, “I feel much stronger and more energetic since my surgery, and want to say thank you to everyone who helped me get better!”

Rosenie is a young woman from Haiti. She lives with her older sister and her husband in Port-au-Prince. Rosenie has a cardiac condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. This condition involves several related defects including a hole between two chambers of the heart, and a blockage in one of the heart’s valves.

Rosenie will fly to the United States to receive treatment. On November 9, she will undergo cardiac surgery, during which surgeons will close the hole in her heart with a patch, and remove the muscular blockage. Another organization, The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano, is contributing $45,000 to pay for surgery.

Rosenie’s family also needs help to fund the costs of surgery prep. The $1,500 bill covers labs, medicines, and checkup and followup appointments. It also supports passport obtainment and the social workers from our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, who will accompany Rosenie’s family overseas.

She says, “I am very happy to have this surgery so that I can have more energy and stop worrying about my heart.”

Mya Mya

Mya Mya is a 40-year-old-woman who lives and work with her elder sister for a herbal medicine production workshop in Sanchaung Township, Yangon Division in Burma. They are originally from Bago Division and moved a few years ago. Since Mya Mya was 18 years old she has felt bronchial asthma and suffered from difficulty breathing. Sometimes she feels severely tired. She went to a health worker at her village and the health worker told her to go and see heart specialist in Yangon. However, at that time she did not have money to go to Yangon, so she did not go. She has only used herbal medicine for treating difficulty breathing since she was 18-year-old, which did help her feel better. For the last four months at night she has severe difficulty breathing, so she woke her sister up and asked her sister to send her to a private clinic called Yaung Chi Oo in Yangon. After the doctor's examination, she was told her that she needs to go and see heart specialist doctor. Then the doctor gave her an injection and some oral medication. Then, she went to Thiri Sandar Private Hospital on January 31, 2020 where she received an echocardiogram. The doctor told her that she has heart disease and she needs surgery. On February 5, Mya Mya went to Kan Thar Yar Hospital (KTYH) as suggested by the doctor at Thiri Sandar Hospital. The doctor at KTYH performed another echo before diagnosing her with large ventricular septal defect (VSD). The doctor at KTYH also told her that she needs surgery. Unfortunately, Mya Mya and her family cannot afford to pay for the surgery. After talking to the nurses and doctor about her problem, the nurses who know Watsi Partner Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF) refered her to BCMF. Mya May needs to stop working because of her tiredness. She is worried about her parents because if she cannot work. She shared, "If I recover from my disease, I need to work for my parents, to support them.”
