Kylian underwent prep and transport for cardiac surgery.

Kylian was able to travel for his cardiac treatment in early March. During surgery, doctors closed the hole in Kylian’s heart with a patch, and removed the muscular blockage from his valve. The medical team share that he should be able to lead a healthy and normal life without further risk from this condition.

Kylian’s mother shared “I have seen a huge change in my son since his surgery - I’m so thankful his treatment went so well!”

Kylian is a baby from Haiti. He lives with his mother and father in a neighborhood of Port-au-Prince; his mother is a nurse and his father manages a small store. Kylian has a cardiac condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. This condition involves several related defects including a hole between the two lower chambers of the heart, and a muscular blockage of one of the valves.

Kylian will fly to the United States to receive treatment. On March 11th, he will undergo cardiac surgery, during which surgeons will use a patch to close the hole in his heart, and will remove the blockage from his valve. Another organization, Akron Children’s Hospital, is contributing $20,000 to help pay for surgery.

Kylian’s family also needs help to fund the costs of surgery prep and transport. The $1,500 bill covers labs, medicines, and checkup and followup appointments. It also supports passport obtainment and the social workers from our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, who will accompany Kylian’s family overseas.

Kylian’s mother shared: “I am so happy that my son has the chance to be healthy and safe.”
