received an e-mail from a Chinese mother who was desperate to find help for her baby daughter.
Following is a portion of the mother's letter.
"Today I am very conflicted. Give up or try again? My daughter was born on May 20, 2004 in Guigang. When she was forty five days old we found out that she has serious congenital heart disease.
Founder of Save Child's Heart
We mend hearts, regardless of race, religion, gender or nationality. Your donation will help make a difference.
The founder and driving spirit of Save a Child's Heart, was Amram (Ami) Cohen, z"l. Dr. Cohen was a charismatic cardiac surgeon from Maryland who immigrated to Israel. His vision, commitment, outstanding skills and unstoppable zeal have taken this life saving undertaking to a prominent position within the international community of health organizations.
In 1995 Ami agreed to operate on two indigent children from Ethiopia in desperate need of cardiac surgery, at the Wolfson Medical Center in Israel. From this modest beginning Save a Child's Heart, under Dr. Cohen's leadership, and with a volunteer group of dedicated professionals, has saved the lives of thousands of children around the world.
