Pictured are Victoria Veronica and Edison
16 year old Victoria has been suffering form severe headaches and blurred vision that caused her to miss.a lot of school days. She had a MRI perfromed to rule out a tumor,etc. Fortunately that test was neagtive.The doctor recommended a eye exam.. HKIE got her to Exilaser....she now is very happy with her new look and the fact she has no headaches and can see well for her studies.
Edison was born with a rare birthmark that invades the tissue or organs...in this case, his eye. He had a benign tumor and his eye removed at a very early age, but recieved no prosthesis. Dra. Mariela Siguencia of Hospital del Rio asked for the help of HKIE to make a very involved prosthetic eye for him (due to the fact of the orbit shrinking with no prosthesis). While he and his family are very excited to recieve the prosthetic eye, young 14 year old Edison is looking forward to some plastic surgery by Dr. Pablo to improve the look around his face and eye.
Thank you Dra Siguencia, Dr Pablo, Hospital del Rio and Exilaser for working with our foundation.
HKIE thanks all our donors for helping to change these two lives.
