Our program included a moving video about beloved Landmark recipient Li Ying from China, who has been a LEAP patient for over ten years. Li Ying first came to the US in 2005, receiving two highly complex surgeries. Li Ying’s life was forever changed, and she has since returned for additional medical and surgical care. Li Ying has become family, especially to Robin and Craig Hobar, who she warmly refers to as “her grandparents”. There was no one more special than Li Ying to help present the Hobars with such an incredible award for all of their humanitarian efforts in the global community over the past 25 years.
