Dear Friends and Family,

            When I started the Denver School of Nursing in July I joined the Global Health Perspectives program that my school has to offer. This means that beyond the intense and fast paced nursing program, I have been volunteering with White Fields Community Church, the City of Westminster, and several other organizations to bring in volunteer hours, along with maintaining good grades to continue membership in this group.  Well, all this hard work has paid off and I am so excited to announce that after the prayers and support from all of you, I have been chosen to partake in an internship to Haiti in June 2014. We will be partnering with the non-profit organization Love Takes Root, which was started by Barb Wilkerson, a pediatric nurse practitioner, and her husband Dr. Rick Wilkerson (Orthopedic Surgeon). Check out their website: http://lovetakeroot.org. Denver School of nursing has partnered with Love Takes Root for the past two years, and it has been through the generous donations of supporters like you that allowed a new orphanage to be built in Jacmel Haiti to replace the orphanage destroyed in the earthquake in 2010. Our internship will focus on transitioning 50 Haitian orphans into the newly constructed orphanage and providing clinical care for the orphans and surrounding community. While on the internship we will scrub into surgery and assist Dr. Wilkerson in surgical needs of the community as well. Most importantly, our goal is to empower Haitian health care providers, while teaching preventative healthcare practices in order to enable these families to thrive independently long after our departure! I am so grateful for this chance to contribute my nursing skills on a global level and would be deeply honored if you would partner with me to raise funds to help me get there and support the work of Love Takes Root! My goal is to raise $2000.00 by May 5, 2014. This money will cover the flights to Haiti and more importantly it will provide needed funds to donate medical supplies, equipment, and program support of the Love Takes Root Orphanage in 2014. Every dollar helps! I would love to keep you posted as I prepare for, attend, and return from this life changing experience. Please let me know if I can include you in emails about this internship or any questions you might have! Thank you so much for your thoughts, prayers, support, and donations.

God Bless!
