Myson received life-saving heart surgery.

“During surgery, the hole between the two chambers of Myson’s heart was successfully closed with a patch,” reports our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance. “Now he has normal blood flow through his heart and body. He should never need another surgery.”

“Myson’s heart and lungs are working so easily now,” shares the director of Myson’s orphanage. “He had to work so hard before to keep them going!”

Nine-month-old Myson “has two very devoted parents,” shares our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance (HCA). “But he currently lives in an orphanage in Haiti due to his illness so that they can help keep him as healthy and stable as possible.”

Myson has three older brothers and sisters who like to visit him and play with him whenever they can. Myson currently suffers from a congenital heart disease called ventricular septal defect.

“A hole exists between the two lower chambers of his heart,” HCA tells us. “Blood leaks through this hole without first passing through the lungs to obtain oxygen, leaving him sickly and weak. If not corrected with surgery, the condition would eventually be fatal.”

$1,500 will fund overseas transportation and preparation for Myson’s heart surgery. Health City Cayman Islands has already subsidized $5,000 of the treatment cost.

“I am so happy that Myson can have surgery and I am praying that everything will go well,” his mother shares.
