Rose underwent life-saving cardiac surgery and is full of new energy.

Our medical partner shared that Rose’s heart surgery went well! During surgery, doctors closed the hole in Rose’s heart with a patch so that blood can no longer leak through it. Her family is grateful to no longer have such a risk of complications and Rose is already all smiles and on the move!

Her mom told us, “Rose has so much more energy and appetite now than she did before her surgery. We are very thankful to everyone who helped her!”

Rose is an adorable preschooler from Haiti. She lives with her parents and three siblings in a small town on the northern coast of Haiti. Rose likes helping her family take care of their pets and chickens.

Rose has born with a cardiac condition called ventricular septal defect which means a hole exists between the two lower chambers of Rose’s heart. This condition often leaves Rose feeling sick and short of breath.

Because the surgery she needs in not available in Haiti, Rose must fly to Dominican Republic to receive the necessary treatment. On March 3rd, Rose will undergo cardiac surgery, during which surgeons will a patch the hole in her heart. Our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance (HCA) is helping Rose’s family raise $1,500 to cover the cost of labs, medication, and follow-up appointments. This will also support her family to obtain passports and the HCA social workers who will accompany Rose’s family during their travel.

Rose’s father shared, “We are very hopeful that our daughter will be healthy and strong after this surgery!”
