Zahraa And Her Family Snuck Out Last Night

You can hardly blame them.

They've been cooped up in a small hospital room for weeks now, and late last night the doctor gave them clearance to leave. When we arrived in the morning, the family was probably happily asleep in their own beds.

But, despite not getting to see them off, we're still celebrating. Zahraa is home now, the hole in her heart is finally closed, and she's set to live a healthy life.

Remedy Mission XIII is winding down, but we'll continue sharing more stories with you over the next two weeks. Keep reading, there's more to come.
