Lens Clifford is a ten-year-old boy from Haiti. He lives with his mother, grandparents, and younger sister. He is in the 4th grade and is an excellent student.
Lens Clifford was born with coarctation of the aorta, a cardiac condition in which the aorta is abnormally narrow making it difficult for blood to pass through it. He has been recommended for heart surgery, and will receive treatment at our medical partner’s care center, Health City Cayman Islands.
Although Have a Heart Cayman is contributing $17,000 to the cost of Lens Clifford’s surgery, he is still in need of $1,500 to cover the cost of his transportation and heart surgery prep. On June 26, Lens Clifford will be transported to the Cayman Islands where he will be prepared for surgery.
“I am excited for my surgery so that I can run and play as much as I want,” says Lens Clifford.
