Isabel and Fred's daughter Nevaeh began her life with heart defect.

"She was just three months old when we began seeing Dr. Nancy C. Dobrolet (cardiologist) and Joann Nieves (nurse-practitioner).  Because Nevaeh needed surgery, we watched the YouTube video of Dr. Redmond Burke (cardiac surgeon) showing how he would perform the operation. That eased us in many ways. On Jan. 6, 2009, Dr. Burke performed the open-heart surgery that our daughter needed. Nevaeh is now 18 months old and she's doing great. We have faith in Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital – everyone there was wonderful. Thank you to all.”
