Celestin Gasamaza, a 25-year-old student and native of Kigali, never dreamed that the life-saving heart surgery he needed was a possibility. On Saturday, he was Team Heart's first surgical patient. Today, he moved from the intensive care unit to the step-down unit, where he is resting comfortably and feeling strong. In this video, Celestin shares his excitement about this "miracle."
"These people are good," he said of his care providers. "They did miracles. They performed wonders. We are asking God that he help them with all their work here. We appreciate it."
