Subject: Update on Mariam

Mariam is doing very well. She is currently at the home of Dr. Ali Aboosi
and is receiving excellent care there. Yesterday she ate a good breakfast,
including lots of chocolate milk!, and some egg. Then she went shopping. JC
Penney gave her a gift certificate of $300 value. She was received there
with great care and concern and given lots of clothing and shoes etc. In
addition to the $300 she was given other gifts. According to those with her
the store personnel fell totally in love with Mariam. Other stores are
offering to help as well.

The ABC affiliate in Pitttsburgh spent 2 hours at Dr Aboosi's home yesterday
filming Mariam and they all fell in love with her. They aired a five minute
piece last night that was very good, according to reports. We hope that AP
TV picked it up and sent it worldwide.

Mariam has an appointment with a pediatric eye specialist next week. We are
working on an appointment with the oncology department in Pittsburgh
Children's Hospital. 

Thanks to all who helped make this possible.

Very best,

Mark and Krista Clement
