BEAM Funding Helps Woman in Need

A Life-Changing Surgery for a Mother of 3

A Life-Changing Surgery for a Mother of 3For twenty years of her life, a Guinea Grass resident endured pain from an external hernia that developed so big that she carried her organs outside her body. The mother of three boys says that aside from the excruciating pain, the public stares were a challenge so she mostly kept at home. Today, when we caught up with Maria Medina, her world has changed. She successfully underwent surgery at the K.H.M.H. where the massive lump was removed and she can now move around as a normal person. News Five’s Duane Moody has the following uplifting story.
