Sandra Reyes Martinez, Nicaragua (2011)
Sandra is from Nicaragua and came to Austin in 2011. She arrived not being able to walk or even smile due to the lack of oxygen. Just a few short days after her arrival, Sandra received her HeartGift in May 2011 without any complications. With a little bit of physical therapy, Sandra learned how to walk and she hasn’t stopped smiling since. Today she is attending school and helps her family on their farm.
