Ely - May 2016As you know, LEAP is blessed to have the great honor of helping children with complex craniofacial problems through our Landmark Program. We have helped over 40 children from around the world through this program, bringing them to Dallas for free surgical care that often requires the generous hearts of our LEAP family and community partners to help these patients and their families while living here.

In January 2015, three-year-old Ely arrived in Dallas from Cuba with her parents and older sister. Ely first underwent extensive craniofacial surgery in March at Medical City Children’s Hospital with two subsequent eye surgeries thereafter by Dr. David Stager, Jr.. We continue to follow Ely and evaluate her for future surgical needs. Ely is happy, doing well in preschool, and thanks to her medical and surgical care, is able to see more clearly and learn faster than before. After her most recent medical exam, Ely then proclaimed that Dr. Hobar is her most favorite doctor EVER! We are continually blessed by this family and the opportunity to benefit other children who live in all parts of the world by providing free specialized surgical care to those in need.
