Miteau underwent cardiac surgery.

During surgery, Miteau’s damaged mitral valve was removed and an artificial valve implanted. This will allow him to grow and gain strength, and his life will no longer be at risk from this condition.

He says, “I liked getting to visit a new country and fly in an airplane for the first time!”

Miteau is a teenager from Haiti. He lives in Port-au-Prince with his mother. He is a very good student and would like to become a lawyer or teacher.

Miteau has a condition called rheumatic heart disease, in which an infection severely damaged one of the valves of his heart, preventing it from adequately circulating blood to his body. This condition leads to fatigue and weakness and would eventually be fatal.

Miteau will fly to India to receive treatment. On September 21, he will undergo cardiac surgery. During surgery, his damaged valve will be removed and an artificial valve will be implanted in its place.

Miteau’s family 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 his family overseas.

He says, “I am very excited about this trip so that I can lead a normal life and stop spending so much time in the hospital!”
