Judson underwent interventional heart catheterization.

During the procedure, a balloon was used to stretch Judson’s valve open to a near-normal size so that blood can flow through it more freely. He should be able to live a normal life with no further danger from this condition.

He says, “I am very glad that I no longer have to worry about my heart, and would like to say thank you to everyone!”

Judson is a 21-year-old man from Haiti. He lives in Port-au-Prince with his father. He is a university student and is studying informatics.

Judson suffers from a condition called severe pulmonary stenosis, in which one of the four valves of his heart is too small. As a result, blood backs up into his heart, leading to heart failure. This will eventually be fatal.

Fortunately, Judson will undergo interventional heart catheterization on May 24. During the procedure, doctors will use a catheter tipped with a balloon to stretch Judson’s valve open to a more normal size.

Our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, is asking for $1,500 to cover the costs of Judson’s travel expenses, catheterization procedure, and lab work.

He says, “I am very grateful to have this chance to live a normal life!”
