Partnership provides life-altering surgery for toddlers
A pair of 20-month-old toddlers traveled with their mothers and an interpreter from Mongolia to Greenville recently to receive life-altering heart surgery, thanks to a partnership between the Brody School of Medicine, Vidant Medical Center and Children’s Heart Project, an international relief project that matches up children who need heart surgery – but lack access to it in their home countries – with North American medical centers willing to donate their services.
