Keshia is a girl from Haiti. She was born with a cardiac condition called Tetralogy of Fallot, which involves several related defects including a hole between two chambers of the heart and a muscular blockage of one of the valves. These defects deprive her body of oxygen, leaving her sickly and weak. She will require an open-heart surgery to repair this condition. Keshia lives with her parents and older brother in a city on the north coast of Haiti; she goes to preschool and likes watching cartoons.

Keshia will fly to India to receive treatment. On August 6, she will undergo cardiac surgery. Another organization, Rotary International, is contributing $8,000 to pay for surgery.

Her 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 her family overseas.
