Eden underwent cardiac care treatment.

Our medical partner shared an update that Eden was able to travel and undergo his long-awaited surgery. During his surgery, it was determined that Eden was too weak to survive an attempt to completely repair his heart defect; instead, doctors placed a band around his pulmonary artery that will help to strengthen his heart, allow him to gain strength and weight over the coming years, and lower the risk of death from his heart condition. In the future depending on his health, he may undergo a second surgery to completely repair his heart defect.

Eden’s mother shared: “I am so happy to see that Eden is already gaining weight and eating much better than before!”

Eden is a 15-month-old baby boy from Haiti. He lives with his mother, father, and two older brothers in a neighborhood of Port-au-Prince. Eden’s father is a teacher and his mother takes care of their family and home. Eden was born with a cardiac condition called complete atrioventricular canal defect. A large hole exists in the center of Eden’s heart that causes blood to leak between all four chambers. This condition puts a strain on his heart and makes it difficult for oxygen to circulate through his body.

The treatment and diagnostics he needs is not available in Haiti so on April 20th, Eden will fly to the Dominican Republic to hoping undergo cardiac surgery. Upon arrival at the hospital, doctors will perform advanced diagnostics to determine the best way to treat Eden’s condition. Depending on the results of the exams, the doctors will determine if they recommend Eden undergo surgery or have his condition closely managed through medication and other care. Haiti Cardiac Alliance is contributing $4,000 towards Eden’s medical care, but his family also needs assistance covering an additional $1,500 for labs, medicines, and follow-up appointments. This also supports passport obtainment and the social workers who will accompany Eden’s family overseas.

Eden’s mother shared, “We are very hopeful that the doctors will have good news to share with us about Eden’s heart problem!”
