I have always wanted to join a Medical Mission Trip but never new where I might fit in with my specific skill set. When I heard about Operation Walk Carolinas, I new this was the perfect fit for me. In general I am a very altruistic person that prefers to serve others. Caring and giving to others is what makes me most happy. Being able to provide healthcare to individuals that do not normally have access would be incredibly satisfying.
I also know from experience that the rehabilitation one receives after a total joint replacement is crucial to optimizing the final outcome. If I could help these individuals regain their mobility, reduce their pain, increase their range of motion and increase their overall wellbeing I would be thrilled. Being a part of a process that will instantly change the quality of someones life is priceless. If chosen for this mission trip to Honduras I would feel truly blessed. In fact, I think I would benefit as much or even more than the individuals receiving total joint replacements.
