Olivier is a three-year-old boy from Haiti. He lives with his mother, father, grandparents, and three older siblings. He likes to dress up and to go to church with his mother.
Olivier was born with a cardiac condition called Tetralogy of Fallot, which means there is a hole between two chambers of his heart and a muscular blockage of one of his heart valves. This condition prevents oxygen from fully circulating through his body, leaving him weak and short of breath.
Olivier will fly to the Cayman Islands to receive treatment. On January 27, he will undergo cardiac surgery. This $12,000 surgery is subsidized by Have a Heart Cayman Islands. Olivier’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 Olivier’s family overseas.
His mother says, “We have been praying ever since we learned about Olivier’s heart problem that one day he could have surgery. We would like to thank everyone who has helped answer our prayers!”
