Anderson underwent life-saving cardiac surgery.

Anderson underwent cardiac surgery and is recovering well! During surgery, a patch was sewn over the hole in Anderson’s heart so that blood can no longer leak through it. His family is relieved to know that he now has a full shot to be able to lead a normal, healthy life with no further danger from his condition.

His father shared, “Our family is all very happy and relieved to know that Anderson’s heart is fixed forever!”

Anderson is an 8-year-old student from Haiti. He lives with his parents and younger brother in a neighborhood of Port-au-Prince. He likes math and science in school, and would like to grow up to be an engineer. Anderson has a cardiac condition called atrial septal defect. A hole exists between the two upper chambers of his heart.

Anderson will fly to Dominican Republic to receive treatment. On November 26th, he will undergo cardiac surgery, during which surgeons will sew a patch over the hole in his heart so that blood can no longer leak through it. Our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, is contributing $8,000 to help pay for surgery.

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

Anderson shared: “I am excited to have this surgery so that I won’t have to worry about my heart any longer!”
