Marvenson is a two-year-old boy who lives in the northern part of Haiti. He resides with his parents—both of whom work as fishermen—as well as his three older siblings. He enjoys playing with his siblings and dressing up to go to church.
Marvenson was born with a cardiac condition called double outlet right ventricle (DORV), in which both of the heart’s major arteries connect to one chamber of the heart, instead of two. This malformation can lead to heart failure and has the potential to become fatal.
Our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, is requesting $1,343 to transport this toddler to his much-needed surgery. He is scheduled to undergo treatment on June 8.
His mother shares, “I am a bit scared about the surgery but I know that God will protect my son and make him well!”
