Michmana underwent cardiac surgery.

During surgery, doctors closed the hole in Michmana’s heart with a patch and removed the muscular blockage in her valve. She should be able to lead a more normal life with few symptoms from this condition.

Michmana is a student from Haiti. She lives with her parents and younger sisters in the mountains of southern Haiti; she has not yet finished high school because of her heart condition. Michmana has a cardiac condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. This condition involves several related defects including a hole between two chambers of the heart and a muscular blockage of one of the valves.

Michmana will fly to the United States to receive treatment. On May 8, she will undergo cardiac surgery, during which surgeons will close the hole in her heart with a patch, and remove the muscular blockage in her valve. Another organization, The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano, is contributing $46,000 to pay for surgery.

Michmana’s 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 Michmana’s family overseas.

She says, “I have been hoping for many years that I could one day have this surgery, so I am very happy!”
