'I want to be well for my daughter'

Our long-time friends may remember Natalina, one of three beautiful ladies from Baucau district, in eastern Timor-Leste, who came to Australia for mitral balloon procedures at MonashHeart in 2012. All three ladies are now firm friends, and we've also stayed in touch and monitored their health. We're very excited to welcome back Natalina, who arrives on the weekend to have a mitral valve replacement at Barwon Health's Geelong University Hospital in regional Victoria. Natalina is raising her 15 year old daughter solo, and says she is looking forward to being well again so she can run her shop and continue to support Aida through school.
