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!”
