EVENT DATE Oct 18, 2014
After great thought I am joining medical staff led by two general surgeons of Mayo Clinic Health System - Eau Claire, on a mission trip to Honduras in October. Our objectives will be to provide free surgical services to low-income locals, who have no means to pay for the help they so direly need.
This is not a vacation for me as I will be working as a surgical nurse putting in long hours, collaborating with translators, and enduring unfavorable conditions.
What I hope to gain from this mission is experience in the surgical arena, and the privilege of helping those in need. I feel very blessed to have this opporturtunity to provide high quality care to these greatful & patient people.
To make this happen I need to raise $1,800 to cover expenses of medical supplies and travel expenses. I do not get paid for this week, all the medical staff are volunteers. I would be so grateful if there’s any way you might be able to help financially or by spreading the word about this mission. More than anything, I would love to share this experience with all of you when I get back. I have no doubt that it will be a life changing event for all of us participating in this mission.
Thanks to all!!
