“Lensley was born with a heart condition called tetralogy of fallot, which involves several related defects and holes in the heart that together prevent blood from adequately flowing to his lungs and throughout his body,” our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance (HCA), writes about this baby boy from Haiti. “Lensley has been very sick since birth, and although he is 12 months old he only weighs nine pounds.”
Clinicians will be able to perform surgery to address Lensley’s heart defects thanks to the generosity of the International Children’s Heart Foundation. $5000 will cover a majority of the cost of the procedure, but things like the cost for Lensley’s overseas transport remain unfunded.
With $1500 we can fund the rest of Lensley’s care and get him back on track.
“We have been so worried because Lensley won’t grow no matter what we try to do,” says Lensley’s mother. “We are excited to see him start to get bigger after surgery!”
