BENEFITING: GEANCO FOUNDATION
Dear Friends, Family, and Colleagues,
This November, along with about 20 of my colleagues, I will be helping to lead The GEANCO Foundation's (www.geanco.org) surgical mission in Nigeria to perform hip and knee replacements, as well as repair fractures that have been previously neglected, in order to improve the lives of those in dire need of our help.
In July, I led a 3-day pre-mission trip in Nigeria to evaluate approximately 200 potential patients. Their need of our services is almost unimaginable.
As part of achieving the goals of our mission, I need your help and support. While the minimum fundraising goal is $2000 to pay for travel and accommodations, I would like to set the bar even higher. In an effort to maximize my contribution to the mission and support my colleagues, my personal goal is to raise $4000.
If you would like to support what we are doing, please make a donation to my fundraising campaign. Even the smallest donation will make a difference, and every little bit will get us close to our goal.
Thank you in advance for your contribution, the value of which goes beyond words. I am very grateful for your support!
Michael D. Baratz, MD
