September 19, 2022

Stevenson is a 26-year-old man from Haiti. He lives in a neighborhood of Port-au-Prince with his parents and several siblings. Stevenson had been attending university, studying for a business degree, when poor health forced him to leave school.

When he was a child, Stevenson developed rheumatic fever, which has resulted in rheumatic mitral valve prolapse. This condition has meant that one of Stevenson’s heart valves is unable to pump sufficient blood through his body, leaving him weak and short of breath.

Thanks to our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, Stevenson will fly to the Dominican Republic, where on September 27th, surgeons at Hospital CEDIMAT will perform surgery to remove the damaged valve, and implant an artificial one.

Haiti Cardiac Alliance is contributing $8,000 to pay for Stevenson’s surgery. But Stevenson’s family also needs your help to fund the $1,500 to cover the cost of labs, medicines, and follow up appointments, as well as for the passports and the social workers, who will accompany the family to the Dominican Republic.

Stevenson shared, “I feel very lucky to have this chance to finally have my heart healed!”
