Local Doctors Continue Efforts to Raise Money for Haiti

Posted:

DENISON, TX -- Hard to believe it's been six months since an earthquake hit Haiti. When it happened we told you about some local doctors who responded to the disaster and now they need your help. Deeda Payton reports.

Grayson County doctors, Chuck Phelps and Jeannine Hatt, are asking for support in a hundred mile bike ride in Witchia Falls next month. The couple provided medical care in Haiti at the Grace Children's Hospital, but it was damaged in the quake. "I've been a little bit saddened by how slowly recovery seems to be occurring in the reports I've gotten. Many things are still the same. The same buildings are still collapsed," said Dr. Jeannine Hatt, a Denison pediatrician.

All the money raised by their cycling team, Race for Grace, will go towards rebuilding the hospital.

If you would like to sponsor the team or participate, visit www.iccraceforgrace.org or call 1-800-72child. The race is in Wichita Falls, TX August 28th.
