Jean Lyndor received heart surgery to repair his mitral valve.

Jean Lyndor’s doctor at Haiti Cardiac Alliance reports, “During surgery, a mechanical mitral valve was implanted in Jean Lyndor’s heart, and it is functioning well. As Jean Lyndor’s heart heals and gains strength over the coming months, he will be able to resume normal activities and go back to school.”

Jean Lyndor says, “I am very very excited to be able to start school again and see all of my friends. I’ve missed it!”

“Jean Lyndor is a very intelligent and observant boy, who wants to grow up to be a civil engineer just like his father. He likes to draw, and loved going to school before he got sick. He is very excited to re-start school as soon as his heart is fixed,” our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance (HCA), tells us.

Meet Jean Lyndor, an 11-year-old boy from Haiti. As HCA explains, “Jean Lyndor has severe mitral regurgitation as a result of an untreated strep throat several years ago, which caused rheumatic fever and severely damaged his mitral valve. As his heart failure has worsened, his feet and stomach have swollen and he has lost the ability to be active. In recent weeks, he has gotten so sick from heart failure that he is now dependent on oxygen, and the opportunity for surgery is coming just in time.”

The cost of Jean Lyndor’s treatment is being covered through another avenue, but he needs our help to ensure that he gets to the hospital safe and sound. $1,500 will cover the cost of the overseas preparation and transportation that Jean Lyndor needs to address his rheumatic heart disease condition. Let’s work together and ensure Jean Lyndor has the opportunity to lead a healthy and happy life!
