3 year old Woodlin just might be an angel. His family lives in Pestel, about halfway between Les Cayes and Jeremie in Southern Haiti. In November 2014, however, Woodlin’s mother took him to the General Hospital in Les Cayes. His stomach was turning black, and was painfully swollen! The child and his mother spent an entire month in the hospital, spending the family’s savings on IV fluids and various tests - without any clear diagnosis. By Christmastime, Woodlin’s stomach was so swollen that internal fluids began to leak through his bellybutton…while the rest of his body wasted away. Nurses told Woodlin’s mother he would die. Yet a New Years’ miracle happened! With the help of local social services & Haiti Air Ambulance, LFBS was able to transfer Woodlin to Port au Prince on a helicopter. Emergency surgery was done and Woodlin had a large tumour removed from his stomach! Woodlin has now returned to Les Cayes and is continuing to heal… but seems stronger than ever.
