Widline to undergo prep for heart surgery.

During surgery, doctors were able to repair Widline’s mitral valve so that it can pump blood more normally. She should be able to lead a full and active life with no further symptoms from this condition.

Widline’s mother said, “Our family made a lot of sacrifices for Widline to be able to have surgery. We are so happy she is healthy!”

Widline is a student from Haiti. She lives with her parents and three sisters on a small farm in central Haiti. She enjoys going to school and church. Widline has a cardiac condition called rheumatic mitral regurgitation. One of the four valves of her heart was severely damaged by a rheumatic fever she suffered in childhood, and can no longer adequately pump blood through her body.

Widline will fly to the Dominican Republic to receive treatment. On October 29th, she will undergo cardiac surgery, during which surgeons will attempt to repair her valve; if they are unable to do so, they will implant an artificial replacement. Another organization, The Mitral Foundation, is contributing $7500.0 to pay for surgery.

Widline’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 Widline’s family overseas.

Widline’s mother said, “Our family is praying for everyone who is helping our daughter get better!”
