Hervensley is a toddler from Haiti. He lives with his parents and older brother in Cap Haitien, a city in northern Haiti. He likes playing with toy cars and listening to the radio. Hervensley has a cardiac condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. This condition involves several related defects including a hole between the two lower chambers of the heart, and a muscular blockage of one of the valves.

Hervensley will fly to Cayman Islands to receive treatment. On February 26th, he will undergo cardiac surgery, during which surgeons will close the hole in his heart with a patch, and remove the muscular blockage.

Hervensley’s family needs help to fund the costs of surgery prep. The $1,500 costs include labs, medicines, and check-up and follow-up appointments. It also supports passport obtainment and the social workers from our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, who will accompany Hervensley’s family overseas. Another organization, Have a Heart Cayman, is contributing $17,000 to pay for surgery.

His mother said, “Our family will be very relieved and thankful when our son is finally healthy!”
