Heurese in Peoria

One of our most recent Haitian Hearts patients, Heurese, is continuing her recuperation from surgery with us. As you can see in the above picture, she looks great and hasn't felt so good in a long time. It's amazing what a difference a functioning heart valve makes!

Heurese is a lovely, soft-spoken woman who is a pleasure to be around. She understands a lot of English. I am trying to communicate with her in my broken Haitian Creole, and we're pleased that Luke will hear his native language.

Heurese is a wonderful addition to our home.

Maria--I scrolled thru past blogs to see how Heurese has changed in the past year. We are thrilled to see this last picture of her and how healthy she looks! Thanks for sharing the picture and keeping us up to date on Heurese. We do feel a special bond with her. Please assure her of our continued prayers for her, her family and also for your family who gives so much.
