Fundraiser Profile

Join me and change lives in Guatemala

Raised by a single mother, I remember vividly the help received from a medium height woman with short dark hair named Ms. Estella. She had a wide smile and tight hug. Everyday she showed up with the same smock style dress and white nursing shoes with no laces. I grew to love her sweet smile and Spanish accent as she cared for my sister and I while my mother worked her late night shifts, and then one day she was gone.

I don’t remember why but I will always remember her and how helpful and caring she was. I wish I could see her again to tell her how thankful we were to have her for that time in our lives.

Now its my turn to care and be helpful so please join me as I raise money for the Osborne Head and Neck Foundation’s next mission to Guatemala. I may not get to see Ms. Estella but she will be in my heart as I help others. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps and I thank you for your support.

I’ve committed to raising $3,000 towards Medical and Impact Missions in Guatemala. With your support we can change lives.

Through annual Medical Missions, we connect expert volunteer surgeons to those suffering in remote areas of developing nations including Ethiopia, the Congo, India and Belize.

In 2021- 2022 we are focused on supporting the people of Guatemala, where 40% of the population does not have access to reliable medical care. The country has made incredible strides to lower poverty, but there is still work to be done.

For one week surgeons and support volunteers will open clinic and surgical center with the goal of helping patients in need. Volunteers who commit to this difficult work pay their own expenses to travel to and stay on each Medial Mission – an incredible testament to their dedication.

Monies raised by the Foundation help support the teams in the field with highly specialized equipment, supplies and instrumentation.We pledge to improve the local facilities we partner with, and never take from a community in need – therefore everything required to perform a staggering range of procedures must be brought to some of the most logistically challenging regions of the world. On average it costs $5,000 per surgeon to provide the necessary supplies to treat a community for the week long journey.

Medical and Impact Missions are 100% funded by donations from supporters like you. We commit to communities with little to no access to medical care, and bring all supplies needed to perform a wide array of medical services.

Your donation is…

  • Providing clinical and surgical services, at no cost, to those living in extreme poverty in Guatemala
  • Arranging and paying for transportation for patients living in remote villages
  • Providing local language experts to eliminate language as a barrier to care
  • Securing lodging for patients in the city during treatment and post op care
  • Sponsoring children to be fed, sheltered, clothed, and protected at the Hogar Shalom Orphanage
  • Adding up to 50 computers for children in remote villages to learn employable skills that can lift them out of poverty
  • Refreshing a school and orphanage living quarters, inside and out, with new paint and onsite community works
  • Increasing access to education skills training
