Marvins is a five-year-old boy from Haiti. He lives in Port-au-Prince with his mother and grandparents, and he likes drawing and playing with toy cars.
Marvens was born with a heart condition that, while not requiring surgery, requires him to visit his cardiologist and pediatrician regularly. During one of these recent visits, they discovered that Marvens has an aneurysm in his brain that could be very dangerous if not treated. Luckily, doctors in Haiti can perform a small surgical procedure to prevent the aneurysm from growing, and keep Marvens safe so his family no longer needs to worry about this condition.
Marvens’ mother is hopeful about this surgery and would appreciate any support. She says, “We will be very happy and relieved once this is over and we know that Marvens will be okay!”
