MLB Pitcher Lends A Hand To Casa De Luz In Dominican Republic

Casa de Luz is home to about 25 severely disabled children whose needs overwhelm their families. Some parents turn the care over to the staff at the small hospital. Some simply abandon the children there.
"We get so much from this game," he said. "You get all this money and you share back. We can get doctors and the government involved. It's something that's touched me and my wife and we've involved her parents and my parents. It's something that can only bring positives into this world."

The public hospital where we do our surgery is primative when compared to the facilities at Children's Hospital. There are NO resources in Puerto Plata to draw upon and we must bring all equipment and supplies used.
