Jimmy underwent prep for cardiac surgery.

During surgery, doctors closed the hole in Jimmy’s heart with a patch, and removed the muscular blockage in his valve. He should be able to lead a normal life with no further risk from this condition.

Jimmy said, “I feel much stronger and healthier since my surgery. Thank you all!”

Jimmy is a teenager from Haiti. He 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. As a result, his body is deprived of the oxygen it needs, leaving him sick and short of breath. He will require an open-heart surgery to repair this condition. Jimmy lives in Port-au-Prince with his parents and two sisters; he is in his second year of high school and would like to become a teacher.

Jimmy will fly to India to receive treatment. On August 19, he will undergo cardiac surgery. Another organization, Rotary International, is contributing $8,000 to pay for surgery.

His 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 his family overseas.
