In less than a month, five-month-old Paulinah experienced a life-changing surgery she will never remember, but her mother will never forget. Florentine took a courageous journey on foot, by canoe, and by car to bring Paulinah to Mercy Ships, where surgeons removed the largest teratoma they had ever seen on a five-month-old baby. “When you save a child you don’t just save a life, you save a lifetime.” – Dr. Sherif Emil, Paulinah’s pediatric surgeon.
