The Hefei Cardiac Exchange Begins
LWB’s first Hefei Cardiac Exchange is now underway! Dr. Stephen Langley and Dr. Jeremy Ringewald arrived in Anhui from Florida and were warmly welcomed by the team from the Hefei Cardiac Hospital and LWB’s China Directors.
They were given a tour of the hospital and met the little patients who had been awaiting their arrival.
This morning, the doctors reviewed patient information during their morning meeting before making a surgery plan for the days ahead.
Dr. Ringewald and Dr. Langley are from St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Tampa, Florida and often work together on cases.
Little Kora, seen here with her mother, will be one of the first children to have surgery to repair her heart.
Colton will have cardiac surgery on the first day as well. His mother was very grateful and excited for her son to have the opportunity to be healed.
Last up for the first day of surgeries is baby Gage. Gage came into LWB care in April, and we think he would be an ideal candidate to be the next Gerber baby with his happy nature and gorgeous smile!
We look forward to giving you updates about the children following their heart surgeries. We would be truly grateful for your thoughts, prayers, and support during the week ahead.
