Inaugural “Miracle Award”
Dan Newlin Miracle Project
On November 21, 2010, Orlando resident Ron Haugh started his morning, like many mornings, working his part-time shift at Sea World. By the end of the day, Ron and his family would be delivered the devastating news that Ron had Stage 4 terminal Brain Cancer.
Instead of releasing Ron to follow-up with his family doctor, the medical professionals at Dr. Phillips Hospital elected to perform emergency life-saving brain surgery on Ron. Ron and his wife Michelle, who had struggled since Ron was laid off from full-time construction work due to down-sizing, had little money in their savings and no health insurance.
