My father told me this story of my great grandfather just a few months ago:

Working for the South Vietnamese government, my great grandfather was a very rich man. At this point, he had considered himself as a thành công, which means to have reached success. One night he had a dream in which God told him that after this night, he will become a real thành công. The next morning, he woke up to a number of dead bodies that had washed up on the shore by his home. He saw this as a vision to change. He gave the dead strangers each a proper burial and opened a compounding pharmacy based on natural medications, but charging none of his patients. He used all of his money up until his death, in which he died a very poor man. Although he had become rich and believed this to be success, life taught him otherwise, in which real success comes with wisdom and helping others.

While taking a pharmacology course, we learned about a drug called Reserpine. A drug used in ancient India, Reserpine was only just isolated in the 1950s. Its therapeutic usage resurfaced at this time and is a derivative for many antihypertensive medications today. With this new bit of knowledge, I forged a new career path for myself in which I want to combine both pharmacy and archaeology.

The beauty of being a student and having the desire for knowledge is the world of opportunities that arise. I have been honored with an acceptance to an excavation in Perugia, Italy this summer. Unfortunately, being a full-time student, I do not have the funds to afford tuition. This is my gentle solicitation for any sort of financial help that you can kindly offer. Every penny counts and I would be so greatly indebted to any financial offer or prayer for help.

With this invaluable experience, I hope to build a firm foundation in excavation and ancient history in order to develop new drugs from natural drugs from our past. I hope for this turn out in order to pay it forward in the future by helping patients who are uneasy about introducing foreign compounds into their bodies. I hope to treat patients in the future with drugs from a more natural basis.
