"His Surgery Would Be Five Years Away"—A Father Shares His Story!

Doctors assigned little Nassir a number—119—and then told him to get in line. 

"Should I get a hotel near the hospital for a few days?" his father asked. "No, come back in 5 or 6 years." So Nassir's father went home dejected with nothing to do but wait. But waiting could render Nassir inoperable, and then it would be too late. 

But, thanks to you, Nassir and his family are getting another chance. Click here to listen to a father tell of his search for a surgery.
