Giving from the Heart: Meet Baby Esther
Generous hearts and God's grace combined to save Baby Esther before a birth defect took her life.
The journey began 1,656 miles from Franciscan Health in the impoverished nation of Haiti, when a Franciscan medical missions team provided testing the child needed and set the wheels in motion for a remedy.
After surgery in Miami, the toddler now looks forward to a normal life. None of this would have been possible without the Franciscan Health Foundation, which is funded by donations from employees and members of the public - people just like you.
Since its inception, the foundation's Medical Missions fund has provided more than $65,000 in support to bring healing and hope to those living in such remote countries as Haiti, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, French Guiana and Kenya.
Donations helps guarantee that other Baby Esthers will get the lifesaving care they need.
You can designate medical missions as the recipient of a Giving from the Heart campaign gift or choose another worthwhile cause closer to home.
Thank you for your life-preserving generosity!
