This year I am doing an additional year of training (a fellowship) to specialize in pediatric complex ear nose and throat disorders. I am running the Boston Marathon to help raise money to help children who are in need of airway surgery.
Often, a tracheostomy (surgical airway) needs to be performed to allow children with narrow airways to breathe. We are able to do airway reconstruction surgery to enlarge a child's airway to allow him or her to be able to breathe and speak without a trach.
By supporting this cause, you will be helping me raise money to help these children by making these procedures available, teaching surgeons in other countries to perform the procedures (please check out operation airway blog https://operationairway.wordpress.com), supporting research to develop new technologies to help with airway obstruction, and creating family support systems.
Thanks for your help!!!
