Anne is a woman from Haiti. She lives in Port-au-Prince with her husband. She works as a clerk in a cell phone shop.
Anne has a cardiac condition called patent ductus arteriosus, in which a hole between a major artery and vein near the heart remains open, instead of closing shortly after birth as is normally the case. Blood leaks through this hole, leaving her sickly and weak.
Fortunately, Anne will undergo interventional heart catheterization on May 24. During the procedure, a device at the end of a catheter will be used to plug the hole so that it can no longer leak.
Our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, is asking for $1,500 to cover the costs of Anne’s travel expenses, catheterization procedure, and lab work.
She says, “I am so glad that God found a way forward for my heart to be fixed!”
