Last month Yasmin and her mom Carina, traveled to Santo Domingo to complete the final tests before Yasmin would be scheduled for her surgery, however, a shocking verdict was given, one we feared.
She was denied the surgery.
She is a perfect candidate, except, they don't believe she would survive the surgery.
She is severely malnourished and needs to not only eat, but eat the right kind of foods that would make her healthy now and to help her heal from surgery.
We held a meeting with Carina, Yasmin, Doctor Vladamir Canela, and our Staff Nurse Deloris Norman. They took measurements, talked with Carina about nutrition and then scheduled a series of tests and x-rays for Yasmin, which she is having done today.
Operation Smile said if Yasmin can get to a healthy weight they will perform the surgery. Will you please pray with us for this dear child? We have turned all of our focus away from the surgery (temporarily) to focus on healing Yasmin's body from malnutrition.
Please join us! If you wish to give to help heal Yasmin, please send a donation to the G.O. Ministries Stateside Office:
