Dymitry is a 13-year-old student from Haiti. Dymitry lives in a neighborhood of Port-au-Prince with his mother and grandparents. He is in the sixth grade and especially likes engineering and math.

Dymitry 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.

Fortunately, Dymitry will be able to fly to Canada to receive treatment. On April 2nd, he will undergo cardiac surgery, during which surgeons will close the hole in his heart with a patch, and remove the muscular blockage from his valve. Another organization, The Herbie Fund, is contributing $25,000 to pay for surgery.

Dymitry’s family also needs help to fund the costs of surgery prep and transport. 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 Dymitry’s family overseas.

Dymitry told us, “I am looking forward to learning how to play soccer after my surgery!”
