Our patient Joaninha has made a spectacular recovery. Tomorrow, just one week after her heart procedure at MonashHeart, she's flying home to East Timor. No longer breathless and weak, she'll be able to go back to school and sport now that her faulty heart valve is fixed. Today she had a final check up with Professor Richard Harper, and also a farewell visit from East Timor Hearts Fund chair Ingrid Svendsen.
Our heartfelt thanks to our sponsor Toll Remote Logistics, which organised travel for Joanina and companion Fatima, and to Professor Harper and all of the team at MonashHeart who worked so hard to make this success story possible.Good bye and good health Joaninha!
