Jean underwent heart surgery.

During surgery, Jean’s damaged valve was removed and an artificial valve was implanted in its place. Although she will require daily medication for the rest of her life, Jean should be able to lead a full and healthy life with her new valve.

From Jean: “I am thankful that I will have good health to be able to take care of my son!”

Jean is a mother of two from Haiti. She lives in a small city in southern Haiti with her husband and two young boys. Jean has a cardiac condition called rheumatic mitral regurgitation. One of the four valves in her heart has been severely damaged due to a rheumatic fever she suffered several years ago.

Jean will fly to the United States to receive treatment. On September 11th, she will undergo cardiac surgery, during which surgeons will remove her damaged valve and implant an artificial replacement. Another organization, The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano, is contributing $35,000 to pay for surgery.

Jean’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 Jean’s family overseas.

“I am looking forward to this surgery so that I can play with my children and take care of them.”
