Rodjana is a creative three-year-old girl from Haiti who lives in Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital city, with her parents and three older siblings. She currently attends preschool and enjoys drawings and making crafts.
Rodjana has several cardiac conditions. She has a heart valve that does not adequately allow blood to be pumped through her body, as well as a hole between two blood vessels near her heart.
Fortunately, Rodjana will fly to the Dominican Republic to receive cardiac treatment on September 7th. There, surgeons will repair the faulty valve and close the hole near her heart. A portion of the cost of her treatment is being supported by Haiti Cardiac Alliance. Rodjana’s family needs help raising the remaining $1,500, which covers labs, medication, and travel costs. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.
Rodjana’s mother says, “I am hopeful that after this surgery, my daughter will be able to play normally and be more active.”
