Last week when Dr. Novick was in Basra he was accompanied by a multi-car entourage complete with a rear-mounted machine gun.
Noor's father and mother did not have that sort of protection when they drove those trecherous roads in search of a remedy for their daughter's broken heart. Noor had surgery yesterday and was discharged from the ICU today. She is only days away from returning home with a real chance at life; a chance that almost passed her by.
Thanks for going to work everyday - wherever you are in the world - and giving a portion of what you earn to the children of Iraq. You've made her father's day... and, in some real way, changed the world forever.
Remedy Missions are international pediatric heart surgery teams that we bring to Iraq to to perform lifesaving heart surgeries and develop the infrastructure for the future.
