He is #1 in his class and wants to be a doctor.

Twenty-four patients sent to Ghana for life-saving spine surgery

Dear Friends:

On December 30, 2017, we sent 24 patients to FOCOS Hospital in Ghana for spine surgery.

We will be posting their individual stories over the next several weeks. Please consider a donation to support their life-saving surgery.

Thank you!
