Loren’s Story
As many of you know, my
daughter, Angela Quinn, and I
regularly lead medical teams to
Haiti. In January, our team
included four surgeons who saw a
baby boy, named Lorens, with a
large growth between his
eyes. They could not even
consider operating without scans,
which were not available in the
Haitian hospital. His mother,
Marie, said that the growth was
increasing in size.
Dr. Will Caldwell, a Charlotte EENT
surgeon who was on the January
team, went to work to bring the child,
his mother and the Haitian doctor
(which Give Hope supports) to the US
in order to operate on the
child. Novant Health agreed to
support the operation at its
Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte and
two renowned surgeons, including a
pediatric neurosurgeon, Dr. Scott
McClanahan, and a facial
reconstruction specialist, Dr. Dave
Matthews, agreed to participate in
the surgery.
Give Hope arranged for tickets for the
three on its May teams’ return flight on
June 1st and went to work with Pastor
Louis St. Germaine to arrange a passport
for the child and visas for all three to
come to the states. After three months
of effort, the visas were issued on Friday
May 31st, one day before the planned
trip to Charlotte on June 1st. On June
1st, Lorens, his mother Marie and Dr.
Junior Osselin accompanied our Give
Hope team from Les Cayes, Haiti to
Charlotte NC via Port au Prince and
Miami.
On Sunday, June 2nd, little Lorens was
admitted to Presbyterian Hospital and
scans were performed to determine
the extent of the growth. It was
determined that the mass was not a
classic tumor but actually was the
result of brain tissue growing into his
nasal cavity due to a weak spot in his
cranium. This further underscored
the need for the surgery in order to
give Lorens an opportunity to live to
grow into an adult. Without the
surgery his chances of long term
survival were practically nil.
The Surgery began around 3:00 PM on Wednesday June
5th and was completed at about 8:00. The surgery was
extremely intricate and delicate but was 100%
successful as it relates to the doctors’ hopes going
in. The doctors believe that the long term prognosis for
him is now quite positive.
Please pray that God will reward the efforts
of Dr. Caldwell and his team of surgeons,
Novant Health and Give Hope with a
complete recovery and a long life for Lorens.

Loren's story - Give Hope Global

  • 1. Loren’s Story As many of you know, my daughter, Angela Quinn, and I regularly lead medical teams to Haiti. In January, our team included four surgeons who saw a baby boy, named Lorens, with a large growth between his eyes. They could not even consider operating without scans, which were not available in the Haitian hospital. His mother, Marie, said that the growth was increasing in size.
  • 2. Dr. Will Caldwell, a Charlotte EENT surgeon who was on the January team, went to work to bring the child, his mother and the Haitian doctor (which Give Hope supports) to the US in order to operate on the child. Novant Health agreed to support the operation at its Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte and two renowned surgeons, including a pediatric neurosurgeon, Dr. Scott McClanahan, and a facial reconstruction specialist, Dr. Dave Matthews, agreed to participate in the surgery.
  • 3. Give Hope arranged for tickets for the three on its May teams’ return flight on June 1st and went to work with Pastor Louis St. Germaine to arrange a passport for the child and visas for all three to come to the states. After three months of effort, the visas were issued on Friday May 31st, one day before the planned trip to Charlotte on June 1st. On June 1st, Lorens, his mother Marie and Dr. Junior Osselin accompanied our Give Hope team from Les Cayes, Haiti to Charlotte NC via Port au Prince and Miami.
  • 4. On Sunday, June 2nd, little Lorens was admitted to Presbyterian Hospital and scans were performed to determine the extent of the growth. It was determined that the mass was not a classic tumor but actually was the result of brain tissue growing into his nasal cavity due to a weak spot in his cranium. This further underscored the need for the surgery in order to give Lorens an opportunity to live to grow into an adult. Without the surgery his chances of long term survival were practically nil.
  • 5. The Surgery began around 3:00 PM on Wednesday June 5th and was completed at about 8:00. The surgery was extremely intricate and delicate but was 100% successful as it relates to the doctors’ hopes going in. The doctors believe that the long term prognosis for him is now quite positive.
  • 6. Please pray that God will reward the efforts of Dr. Caldwell and his team of surgeons, Novant Health and Give Hope with a complete recovery and a long life for Lorens.
