Operation Herbie : A World of Difference

In this one-hour special, award winning CityNews anchor Gord Martineau brings you the heart felt stories of two young children, 4 year-old Shatho Batisani from Botswana and 9 year-old Brittney Ramai from Trinidad, both in need of life-saving surgery. With no cure to be found in their home countries the children are brought to the world-renowned Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. See their emotional journeys from inside the operating room to full recovery, as they are given a gift far greater than one found under a Christmas tree. Watch as Shatho undergoes a highly complicated intestinal surgery while Doctors in Toronto perform Brittney’s second open heart surgery of her young life. Gord shows viewers how their donations can truly make a difference in a child’s life, and reaffirms the age old adage “it is better to give than to receive.”
