Good News!

I am very happy to announce that we recently have had two patients accepted at hospitals! Given the current economic/health care environment, these are huge successes. Much credit goes to my husband John for his persevernce in advocating for his Haitian patients. He has to hear a lot of "no's" before a patient is finally accepted.

With one of these patients, the details are still being worked out, so I'll leave those for a future post. But today I can tell you that 7-year-old Modjina has been accepted by St. Louis Children's Hospital. You can see Modjina's picture and read more about her here.

Haitian Hearts has had a long and happy relationship with St. Louis Children's. Modjina is the fifth patient they have accepted in the past several years.

We are looking forward to completing the paperwork and bringing Modjina to St. Louis sometimes this fall.

Found your blog by accident today. I contacted your husband more than 4 years ago when I was trying to get a boy here from Haiti on a medical visa. I'm happy to say that my son is a thriving 12 year old now. We are managing his kidney disease.. it will be a life ling battle, but he is a joy in our house.

I'm glad these two will get help. I will keep your blog as a favorite now.
