FLAVIO IS HOME AFTER A SUCCESSFUL OPERATION

We are very pleased to announce that Flavio returned to his host family home July 1, after only 5 days at Presbyterian Hospital!   

Presbyterian  donated  all of the operating staff, the nursing staff in Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, medications and drugs,  and  other hospital care for Flavio .   The hospital has supported our efforts to bring children who have no resource for health care in their own country since 1990.   Also making a valuable gift of their time and expertise is Dr. Carl Lagerstrom, Pediatrix Cardiology, Anesthesia Associates, TriCore Laboratories, and Radiology Associates.    THANK YOU!
