On Monday teacher and father of three Tomas Pinto arrived in Melbourne, weak and breathless from his heart disease. Today he is all smiles. Tomas had a mitral valve procedure yesterday at MonashHeart in Melbourne. All went well and he is making a great recovery. Our thanks to Professor Richard Harper and the wonderful teams at MonashHeart and Monash Health.
Tomas's brother Eddy has sent us this touching message: "On behalf of our family, I would like to thank you very much for your generosity and kind help to save my brother Tomas's life. All of the family are very happy with the result of the operation. We don't have anything to offer you guys but we can only pray to God to give you success and happiness in life. "
