A groundbreaking moment occurred at a California hospital when an all-women team of health care professionals performed a heart transplant on a female patient. Led by Dr. Amy Fiedler, the team included six other women with various specialties in the medical field.
The five-hour procedure was successful, and it wasn’t until the end of the operation that the team realized they had made history by being an all-female team. The team hopes that their story will inspire more women to pursue careers in medicine and break down barriers that have historically limited women in the field.

A Blessing from God to demonstrate that all people, e.g., medical female professionals possess the same knowledge-capabilitiess as other male heart surgeons. Barriers to change need to escalate to heal and bring together all people of the world created by his hands of love.
