AHDH ARRANGES SURGERY FOR HAITIAN GIRL WITH HEART DEFECT
Elizabeth, a 3-year old from La Vallee de Jacmel, was diagnosed with congenital heart defect by our
then Medical Director, Dr. Walkens Desir. Elizabeth was very fortunate in that Dr. Desire knew her
diagnosis, followed through immediately and discussed it with Dr. Susan Jeanfeau who was one of
the AHDH volunteers during the July 2011 mission.
With subsequent follow-up by Dr.Jeanfreau, connections were made with the HeartGift Foundation
in New Orleans to fly Elizabeth and her guardian, Ms. Perette Saint-Felix, on March 21 for surgery.
On 3/28/2012, after thorough examinations, she underwent repair of a Ventricular Septal Defect at
Children's Hospital of New Orlean with the generous support of HeartGift and the cardiac surgeons
of that institution. AHDH presented plaques to thank HeartGift and the Children's Hospital.
