My recent humanitarian mission to Peru was such an uplifting life changing experience for me. I would like to once again thank Dr. Middleton and the rest of my extended family here for all the support and encouragement that I received making this trip possible.
I had the opportunity to assist as a surgical scrub along side some amazing surgeons and surgical residents from Loma Linda Medical Center in Oral Facial reconstruction surgeries. I also had the unique opportunity to view an entire open heart surgery from start to finish. That reinforced the valuable message that “we must stay Heart Smart, always, not just in the month of February.”
Other highlights of my trip included our excursion to Cuzco & the Sacred Valley of the Incas, and my venture that I survived my hike up Wayna Picchu.
I am certainly looking forward to next year’s mission.
