Our latest patient, Maria, an emergency nurse at Baucau Hospital in Timor-Leste, had her first experience as a patient this week, with a heart procedure at Eastern Heart Clinic in Sydney, followed by recuperation at Prince of Wales Private Hospital.
Maria is in great spirits and eating and drinking well. "I can feel the difference now. I can breathe much easier," Maria told us.
"I am forever grateful for everyone involved in giving me the second chance in life. I can't wait to go back to my family and start working again," an excited Maria said.
Our thanks and gratitude to Eastern Heart Clinic's Virag Kushwala and Roger Allan, who performed the procedure, and to all at Eastern Heart and Prince of Wales Private, who have cared so superbly for Maria. Thanks also to Simoa, from Bairo Pite Clinic, who accompanied Maria to Australia.
What a fantastic Christmas gift for Maria and her family.
