Thank you to all of our sponsors, auction donors and gala attendees – our 25th Anniversary Gala Benefit raised over $77,000!!

Funds from this year’s gala will help our mission teams provide 100 surgeries during our two week mission planned for February 2013 – February 2-8 in Palo, Tacloban and February 8-15 in Ormoc. Rick Rolph did an incredible job as our auctioneer to make the evening fun and help us reach our fundraising goals. Karen Leigh was a wonderful emcee and Jaime Yrastorza inspired us all with his acceptance speech when presented with the UI Lifetime Achievement Award. Thanks to all for a great night!

Its been an amazing week! Thanks to you we’ve completed a record setting 115 surgeries. Dr. Krebs discharged the last patient today(Saturday). The team now starts to head back or take a needed day off. Siargao Island is an amazing place and thanks to all the people that made this medical mission happen. We’ll be home soon.

This morning our team (while in surgery) was notified that in another part of the hospital a woman was in labor and things had gone wrong. Very wrong. Our hosting hospital is small. They only have 2 doctors and several nurses … they needed our help. Emergency C section was needed and Stat!

We cleared an OR Table and made way. Emergency C Section was performed (By Dr. Chloe from Dapa) The baby was pulled and Code Blue (not breathing). But, we are here to help. We revived the baby with CPR. Both the mother and baby would have died if our medical staff was not here. Gulp. The mother is in the recovery room … and I snapped a pic of the second she was able to see and touch her baby for the first time. Both mother and baby are alive and stable.
