Dr. David Jimenez being interviewd by KSAT 12 News

Our Chairman, Dr. David Jimenez, performed lifesaving surgery on 2-year-old orphan, Ivela, from Haiti this past Monday. Ivela suffered from hydrocephalus, a buildup of fluid in the brain, and had already lost her twin sister to fever in the orphanage where they lived. When Dr. Jimenez heard Ivela’s story he offered to perform the surgery for free. After the surgery Dr. Jimenez reported, “She’s going to do great, I think. She has a good outlook on life.” For the full story visit KSAT.com.
