Had the American doctors' humanitarian gift been in vain?The struggle to save the young girls life was but one of many incidents crowding the six weeks the Loma Linda University surgeons spent at the Evangelismos hospital in Athens. Evangelia was more than a patient. She was a life touched and changed forever by the kind strangers.Herb Ford recounts the personal stories of four patients he met when he accompanied two of the surgeons, doctors Ellsworth Wareham and Joan Coggin, on a return trip to Greece to check on the results of the operations.
