The patient, Radalphta Moise, and her mother, Fredette, are staying in the area with host families. Pardee Hospital affiliated physician William L. Overstreet III, M.D., a plastic surgeon with Blue Ridge Plastic Surgery, will perform the necessary surgeries at Pardee Hospital. Pardee credentialed pediatricians will also serve the patient. Moise is expected to have her first surgery in February.

The chosen program participants receive all-expenses-paid travel, accommodations and medical treatment. The children travel with a family member who accompanies them throughout their stay and treatment. The Rotary Club of Hendersonville and the Four Seasons Rotary Clubs are sponsoring the patient and providing all travel and lodging expenses.
