Help Mohamed Walk


LAST WEEK, my wife Dr. Pier Boutin, sent an email to my online community about a four-year-old boy with severe clubfeet, Little Mo. This is a boy she met on her trip to Morocco and felt compelled to help. The way the email was sent may have seemed odd or suspicious, but her heart is in the right place. As Mother Theresa once said, “We can do no great things, only small things with great love.”

Little Mo and his father will come to live with our family for 2 to 3 months in Massachusetts while he recuperates from surgery while the incisions completely heal and he learns to walk and run. If he doesn’t stay with us, his wounds won’t heal and may become infected because the living conditions are harsh in the remote mountains of the Haut Atlas.

If you want to help Little Mo, you may read more about him and/or donate by clicking here.

If you want more information, please contact Pier directly at:


To your good health,

Mark Hyman, MD

    Dear Dr. Hyman, Our youngest daughter, 44 yrs old, died in the shower on May 27, 2010. They said heart attack, which I believe is true. She told me 2 days before she died that she had the worst heartburn she had ever had that night. She said it even was going down her left arm. I told her it sounds like a heart attack and please get help. She died the day before her appointment. We were devastated and still are. Then Nov. 1st, our daughter 13 mo. older, 45 yrs, died in our basement. They are saying she died of a heart attack also. Neither daughter was obese, the 45 yr old daughter had changed her eating habits in the previous months and was eating healthier. She had lost 17 lbs she said. My husband and I and our 45 yr old daughter had the same Dr. Our youngest daughter 44 yrs. was married and did not share the same Dr. I do not know if she had cholesterol problems but I do not think so. No high blood pressure. She ate healthy, fruits and vegetables and had been on flax seed for years. She was 5’6 and never weighed out of the 120’s. 2 yrs ago she went through treatment for Hepatitis C and did the interferon treatment. Can that weaken the heart?
    Our daughter Mary was 5’4 and never weighed more than 150 lbs. She was being treated for high tryglycerides and high blood pressure and high chlolesterol. She did a stress test and was told everything was good. She was very upset about her sister dying and seemed very depressed. But she went to work everyday. We have 1 daughter left and 3 sons. I have asked all of them to have tests done to see if there is anything genetic there. We have not gotten autopsy results on our last daughter that died Nov. 1, 2010.
    The insurance company is denying our last daughter the opportunity to have testing done. Either the ct scan or the invasive test. One son goes this week for a stress test. They said there is a small abnormality in his heart beat. My husband is 78 and has never had heart problems. I am 75 and have never had heart problems but have 2 brothers who have had stents put in them.
    I say this is pre-existing conditions but of course insurance companies do not.
    Very upset in Missouri.
