Healing the Children Northeast is saddened to learn about the loss of Dr. Cheryl Lynn Carrao, 51, who passed away suddenly on September 29th.  Cheryl was the wife of Dr. Vincent Carrao who is a long time member of HTCNE (since 1999) and who has traveled on 23 trips with Dr. Steven Roser leading the teams.

Cheryl leaves behind her husband, Vincent, her son Thomas and her daughter Sara, as well as her parents, Billy and Joan Wafford.  Cheryl also leaves behind her brother, William Wafford, her in-laws, Thomas and Lucille Carrao, and many cousins, aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces.

Our Deepest Condolences to her Family! 

Missy and Georgann,

I’ve wanted to do this for a while but was never successful. This trip I made sure I made the time.
You ladies are the unsung heroes of our trip. You make everything run smoothly and get the
necessary essentials done in the background that many of the team members don’t even know are required.
You never complain, just keep plodding along making sure we get our act(s) together so we can get
safely in and out of these countries and have a successful trip.

There are not enough ‘thank you’s’ to be said for all you do for us. Please know how much I
appreciate your time and unrelenting efforts to help to make each and every trip the best possible.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart
