Jade is an 18-month old baby girl from Haiti. She lives with her mother and father in a small city in Southwestern Haiti where her mother is a nurse at the local hospital and her father is a teacher.
Jade was born with a condition called patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), in which blood leaks between the major artery and vein connected to the heart. This has led to heart failure, which has left Jade sick and short of breath.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, is helping Jade to receive treatment. On September 9th, doctors will use a catheter to plug the hole between the artery and the vein so that blood can flow normally. Now, Jade’s family needs help to raise $1,500 towards the cost of Jade’s procedure and care.
Jade’s mother shared, “thank you to everyone who is helping to heal our daughter’s heart!”
