What an honor to go with the scoliosis charity International Surgical Foundation again to the Dominican Republic. The team of people from 4 countries and numerous states helped a number of children and young adults. Again, lives were changed. Again, I felt the magic of helping others in need. It is simply amazing to witness the changes in a matter of a few hours. These hours are very intense and there is no doubt about that. Seeing these people walk a day after their surgeries, albeit in pain, taller and straighter is just a wonderful experience for us all. Seeing children in hospital who are laughing and playing and having fun is just a great sight.
There are a few graphic surgical images in this post.
