Our volunteers who go on our Medical Trips are very special people,
and we are so grateful for them.
Tom, a nurse who has participated in several trips,
shares a couple of memories:
“Little boy waking up from anesthesia after a cleft lip repair. He was very fussy and just wanted to be held. So I held him and he calmed down quickly. He loved to snuggle, as did I. This is what nursing is.”
“This was a 10 year old girl waking up from anesthesia and near terrified. I oriented her to time/place (am bilingual) and then asked her what I could do to help her. She asked me to hold her hand. This was the greatest thing in nursing I’ve ever done. I still cry when I look at this.”
