Humanitarian Work



Quillacollo, Bolivia

Now that Gabriel, Juan, Angelica, and Alejandra
have been properly introduced,
it’s time to say goodbye. 

But I hope you won’t forget us,
nor the other kids at the children’s homes,

but that you will keep us in your thoughts and prayers
as we continue on this journey called life.

  1. As a Medical professional, you might be interested in this tidbit. In a recent edition of The Perdue PVM Annaual Report, there is was an article describing a partnership Purdue had with disadvantaged children, introducing them to Veterinary medicine. Because these children have to be resourceful, make quick and many times creative decisions, all good qualities in Veterinary medicine, it was concluded that they could be strong candidates for Vet or Med school. This is just a quick overview of the article, but it has clearly resonated with my Mama. Skyler Braveheart

    • Yes…I believe these children have immense strength and courage given what they already had to go through, and I have no doubt they will be able to face whatever life puts in their way. 🙂

  2. I have no doubt that they will always be in your thoughts and prayers. Melanie (my daughter) still vividly remembers the various orphans she had the privilege to meet in Mexico. I still clearly remember so many of the people whose paths crossed mine while volunteering at Toronto East General Hospital. Those experiences helped to make us who we are today! 🙂

    • I completely agree! These experiences have had immense impact on the way I view life and the way I practice medicine and care for others. It’s something that sticks with a person, and I’m definitely grateful I had the opportunity to experience them. 🙂
