Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital,
in Beaumont, Texas, has been a wonderful blessing to children and hospitals,
wherever God sends Treasures. They have donated supplies from band-aids to
open heart surgery equipment. As we inventory a new box full of supplies, we
sometimes think, "Why would anybody want this?" Within a day or two, a
request for those specific items, as well as for others, will come in. The
answer is placed in our hands, while the need, as yet unknown to us, is
September, 2001, we delivered 6 suitcases of special pediatric supplies to
Voronezh Children's Hospital. As Dr. Natalie Yudina gave a tour to one of
our team nurses, she described a room as a central venous line room, "if we
had any." Guess what was in one of the suitcases, that's right...boxes and
boxes of central lines. These are a "prize" for the doctors, as many of
their patients are children with cancer. The lines are placed into the small
veins for long-term treatment.
Dr. Elena Balakireva, neurologist, explains what the
children are suffering with before we go to pray for them.
