4-year-old returns to Haiti after life-saving surgery

By

A 4-year-old girl is back home in Haiti after having life-saving surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester…

 

Magalie had a lemon-sized tumor between her eyes. It was benign, but if allowed to grow it would take her vision and eventually her life…

 

Her surgery took 12 hours. Five days at the Mayo Clinic quickly turned into three weeks.
