Hi friends and family!

This winter break (January 9th-18th) I will be traveling to rural Riobamba, Ecuador on a medical brigade. Alongside 35 other Boston College students, I will be working directly with doctors and nurses in caring for patients that do not have access to healthcare. We will be partnering with the MEDLIFE organization to bring Medicine Education and Development to Low Income Families Everywhere.

The World Health Organization estimates that almost 1 billion people worldwide face a critical shortage in access to healthcare. Imagine a time you or a loved one has been in serious need of medical attention. Now imagine not being able to see a doctor or specialist when you were in pain? By working with the community of Riobamba, I will be engaging in hands on and person to person care to give medical attention to those in need.

If you know me, you know I have a passion for making others happy and loving those around me. As a nursing student, I feel I can positively impact the lives of others through education, medical care, and of course hugs!

This trip means so much to me; I feel so incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to travel to Riobamba and immerse myself into the culture of this community. I feel this trip is closely linked to my future career path and the lasting impact I want to have on the world. 

As Mother Teresa earnestly said, "Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love". Please help me carry out this statement in serving the community of Riobamba.

Even the smallest donation counts towards helping me to help a patient in need. Please help me out! Thank you!!
