Interview with Author of Earth Angel with a Green Card

The Executive Director at Ironwood Cancer & Research Elizabeth Mueller interviews Dr. Edgar Hernandez about his new book Earth Angel with a Green Card.

Earth Angel with a Green Card is the true story of the author’s mother who spent her life in service to others, especially her children. During her modest early life in rural Mexico, she bore 11 children, whom she raised with very few resources. She   also acted as a nurse for her medical practitioner husband. When the author immigrated to the USA at the age of 9½, it broke her heart, but through her faith, hope, and dreams, she joined him and other members of the family several years later. Her work-ethic, love, and faith inspired her children and many others to live fulfilling and happy lives.
