“We all want what is best for Kendory and hoping that this test will provide a way to fix his heart,” says Kendory’s mother. Kendory is a two-year old boy from Haiti with a condition called a ventricular septal defect, in which a hole exists between the two chambers of his heart.
To determine whether this condition is repairable, doctors need to insert a catheter into the chambers of his heart to diagnose his condition with confidence, and come up with an accurate treatment plan. This procedure costs $1,500, and following the procedure, Kendory’s family will know with certainty whether the condition is operable or not. “If operable, plans will then be made to move forward with this surgery as soon as possible,” explains our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance (HCA).
“Since this is not possible in Haiti, arrangements are being made to bring him to Dominican Republic to perform this extremely important test in the hopes that he can have heart surgery later in the year,” shares HCA.
Kendory lives with his mother, father, and older sister and brother, and is a very happy child, curious about everything around him. Let’s help Kendory receive the test and treatment he needs.
