Meet Rickenley. He is three years old, and lives with his parents and sister in Haiti. Rickenley is intelligent and curious, and loves watching soccer (his favorite team is Real Madrid).

“Rickenley suffers from a condition called coarctation of the aorta, in which the aorta is too narrow to allow blood to pass through normally. The heart must work much harder to push the blood through,” explains our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance (HCA). “This causes the heart to fail, and in Rickenley’s case it would soon be fatal.”

“We have been very scared ever since the doctor explained to us what is wrong with Rickenley,” his parents say. “It’s a miracle that he will have the chance to be fixed!”

$1,500 will help Rickenley get the surgery he needs to repair his heart. Let’s work together to give him a chance to lead a healthy life!
