In 2008, Hadil Al-Sammouni's home was struck by a missile during an extreme period of fighting between Israelis and Palestinians. The strike left Hadil with two huge holes in her skull and chronic headaches. In 2011, SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center Division Director of Neurosurgery Dr. Samer Elbabaa was contacted about Hadil's case. With Dr. Elbabaa's expertise and help from SSM Cardinal Glennon, Hadil came to St. Louis and underwent neurosurgery in November. See the news clip and read the full story here.
