Nesly is a young man from Haiti. He lives in a small village in northwestern Haiti with his parents and siblings. He would like to go to college once he is in better health. Nesly has a cardiac condition called severe rheumatic mitral and aortic regurgitation. Two of the four valves in his heart have been severely damaged due to a rheumatic fever he suffered several years ago.
Nesly will fly to the United States to receive treatment. On September 10, he will undergo cardiac surgery, during which surgeons will remove his damaged valves and implant artificial replacements.. Another organization, The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano, is contributing $35000.0 to pay for surgery.
Nesly’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 Nesly’s family overseas.
“I am so happy that this surgery will finally be possible for me!”
