VIETNAMESE MIRACLE BABY MAULED BY WILD ANIMALS TO UNDERGO TREATMENT IN THE U.S.
Abandoned at birth in a remote rural area of Central Viet Nam, Phung Thien Nhan not only survived against all the odds, he continues his fight to lead a normal life. Dubbed the Miracle Baby, the three years old Vietnamese toddler will travel from Hanoi (Viet Nam) to Houston, Texas for crucial reconstructive surgeries.
Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Tue Dinh has agreed to perform the complex surgery free of charge, although peripheral cost such as anesthesia, operating theater fees and dedication are expected to cost up to $100,000. The trip is coordinated by Greig Craft, President of the Asia Injury Prevention Foundation, and Kids Without Borders.
Last year, Thien Nhan was treated by a medical team at the Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, and the Northwestern University Medical Center in Chicago.
Thien Nhan and his family will arrive in Houston on Saturday, September 26, 2009. On Sunday, September 27, 2009 from 2 to 6 p.m. community members are invited to an informal reception to welcome the family.
