I came across this touching story while checking out the work of one of our Matador Marketplace community members, Benjamin Thomas, who was a cinematographer and editor on it while working with Stableford Studios. It’s called Aster’s Story and is about Aster Degaro, a 13-year-old girl in rural Ethiopia, who had a life-threatening tumor growing on her neck. With no options for surgery in Ethiopia, Little Baby Face Foundation and Wide Horizons for Children made it possible for her to travel to NYC for the required surgery.

In a world of such negative media coverage I’m grateful to those who cover the more positive aspects of humanity.
