Heartfelt thanks to a quiet achiever

Fati and Ana Clarita in theatre

We spend a lot of time lauding the medical teams that perform such amazing work for our patients, but there is a quiet achiever whose contribution is also vitally important - the wonderful Fatima Mendonca from Bairo Pite Clinic. Fati has been by Ana Clarita's side since she left Timor-Leste, and provided much-needed comfort when Ana Clarita was understandably terrified in the operating theatre. As you can see from this photo, Fati is a warm and caring person who deals with any crisis and instantly puts people at ease. We couldn't do what we do without her, and we say thanks from the bottom of our hearts.

She an inspiration!

Our previous  patient Nina arrived in Melbourne last night. This time last year Nina had serious heart disease and was weak and breathless. Since her heart valve procedure at MonashHeart she's made a full recovery and is now running 10k twice a week in training for Run Melbourne. Nina is doing the run to help raise funds so other patients can have the same opportunity. Sponsor her at https://give.everydayhero.com/au/joaninha-faria
