Yoan and Meily


Yoan and Meily came to RMHC on June 20, 2022, after giving birth to their baby boy who was born with Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension, a condition that occurs when pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) remains abnormally elevated after birth, resulting in right-to-left shunting of blood through fetal circulatory pathways.  The family is from Branch, LA and had to alter their lives tremendously because of their child’s illness.  Because of the duration of their stay, Yoan’s employer allowed him to temporarily transfer to New Orleans so he could continue to earn an income while here.  The family spent a total of 64 nights at RMHC and were very grateful for the services we provided, including daily transportation and hot meals.
