Clifterson underwent prep and transport for heart surgery.

During surgery, the connection between Clifterson’s heart and his aorta was reconstructed so that blood can flow normally through his heart. He should be able to live a full and active life with no further symptoms from this condition.

Clifterson’s mother said, “I am so glad that I can stop worrying about my son’s health!”

Clifterson was born with a heart condition called double outlet right ventricle, in which the aorta connects to the heart in a different place than it normally does. This prevents the heart from pumping oxygen-rich blood to his body, leaving him sick and short of breath. If untreated, it would be fatal. Clifterson lives in a rural area of southwest Haiti with his mother who is a farmer.

Clifferson’s mother says, “I am so happy to know that there is a chance for my child to become healthy!”
