Myrtha is 24 years old and lives in Port-au-Prince. She has valvular heart disease from rheumatic fever. She lives in a state of congestive heart failure because too much blood gets trapped in her lungs. She is very short of breath when she exerts herself.

Her family would like her to stay alive and so would she. And when I told her that I have been unable to find a hospital in the United States to accept her for heart surgery, she told me to keep praying.
