Good news for Marie Audrey

Marie Audrey's nails are finally pink! You don't understand the symbolism of this good news? We explain it all to you.

We met Marie Audrey during our mission in Yaoundé, Cameroon, last March. Originally from Douala, the little girl traveled several hours by bus with her father to meet the Association's cardiopediatrician. Marie Audrey is smiling but the symptoms of her heart disease are visible: she is very cyanotic, her mouth and fingers have a bluish color and she gets out of breath at the slightest effort. Marie Audrey has transposition of the large vessels.

Back in France, our team had his file studied by the medical staff who decided to take care of him quickly. At the age of 4, is it already too late to operate on her? To find out, we decided to bring her to France in order to carry out additional examinations, which would not be possible in her country.

And finally, Marie Audrey, had a successful heart operation at the end of September at theMarie Lannelongue Hospital in the Paris region.

During several weeks of convalescence in her foster family, she regained her strength, appetite and energy... no more cyanosis, no more blood mixing, Marie Audrey regained a natural pinkish hue. This very symbolic color marks the end of 4 years of illness and worries for her parents and the beginning of a new life for this little ray of sunshine.
