Rosaica (3) lives with patent ductus arteriosus and pulmonary hypertension – a heart problem that affects some babies soon after birth, where abnormal blood flow occurs between two of the major arteries connected to the heart. 

Though she has spent little time in inpatient care for her heart condition, she is in need of life-saving cardiac surgery. 

After the 2010 earthquake, Rosaica spent two days under rubble before her family was able to find her. She and her mother live with extended family outside Port-au-Prince.
