I’m sorry to bring another urgent need to you. Many of you know Nedgy Bertrand, the 13 year old who we brought to Florida for Scoliosis surgery. She has done remarkably well.
Her mother, Sophia Bertrand, had a heart valve replaced when she was 19 years old. She is now 36 and the valve is failing. We have searched for over a year for a ministry to do the surgery for us but to no avail as replacing a scarred valve is a bigger deal and no one want to touch it. When the original echo of her heart was done we were told to be sure to schedule the surgery for some time in 2014. Two weeks ago we had another echo done on her heart and the physician said that her situation was urgent and needed to be done as soon as possible.
There is no facility or physician in Haiti able to do the surgery so we started to look elsewhere and found that we could send her to Cuba for surgery. The plane fare and documents will cost $891.00. Once evaluated we will be told the cost of the surgery which I have been told will be around $8,000.00.
If the Lord leads you, please help us get Sophia her life saving surgery.
