Reporter: 12-YEAR-OLD

DIMARUS DID NOT REALIZE HOW

CLOSE SHE WAS TO DYING.

THE PAIN WAS SO TERRIBLE,

I COULDN'T STOP CRYING.

Reporter: THIS IS

DIMARUS' MOTHER.

I DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY

TO DO THE HOSPITAL TESTS.

SO I JUST KEPT HER AT HOME

AND TRIED TO CARE FOR HER.

Reporter: DIMARUS WAS

BATTLING APPENDICITIS, AND

NOBODY KNEW IT.

I FELT HOPELESS.

I WONDERED WHO I COULD

BORROW MONEY FROM.

WHEN SHE STARTED FAINTING, I

GOT REALLY SCARED.

Reporter: THE NEXT

MORNING, DIMARUS' MOTHER

BROUGHT HER TO AN "OPERATION

BLESSING" DOCTOR.

THE MOMENT THE DOCTOR

CHECKED HER, HE KNEW SHE HAS

APPENDICITIS.

THEY PUT HER IN A POLICE CAR

AND RUSHED HER TO THENIEST

THE NEAREST HOSPITAL.

THE "OPERATION BLESSING"

DOCTOR SAID IT WAS AN

EMERGENCY.

THAT SHE NEEDED TO BE

OPERATED ON IMMEDIATELY OR

SHE COULD DIE.

Reporter: ONCE THERE,

SHE WAS TAKEN IN FOR AN

EMERGENCY APPENDECTOMY.

THANK GOD THE DOCTOR

REMOVED HER APPENDIX AND

SAVED HER.

Reporter: TODAY THE

YOUNG GIRL IS HEALTHY

TODAY.

IT WAS SO TERRIBLE, WHAT

HAPPENED TO ME.

THANKS TO "OPERATION

BLESSING," I AM ALIVE.
