Surgery Success!

Lorrette Pierre is a wonderful Haitian woman that suffered from a tumor on her lower jaw that would eventual block her breathing and ability to eat.  A surgeon from Tennessee made a valent attempt to remove the tumor in the days following the earthquake.  However, the facilities in Jimani did not have the equipment necessary to ensure she would make it through.  It was incredibly painful to see her wake up from the surgery and realize that she was no different than before.  She also was incredibly sick from the  medication used to put her under.

The surgeon returned to the states with a mission:  get Lorrette here for surgery as soon as possible.  His efforts paid off recently.  Read about the incredible actions of doctors in Florida to save this young ladies life:
