2018 Medical trip to Guatemala

Hi friends and family,

In Febuary 2018 I have the opportunity to travel with a large group of doctors, nurses, pharmicists, a chiroprater, and dentists to the small villages in Guatemala who are without health care.  This team will be bringing in life saving antibiotics, medicines, as well as vitimins and medical supplies to help these impoverished people.  Last year I served with this same team and saw the great impact that our work produced.  We saw just over 1,800 people in 4 days of clinic.  Personally I saw around 60 pediatic patients and their families a day.  We were able to diagnose and treat many conditions like boils, new asthmatics, cardiac issues, dyslexia, crickets, worms, scabies, and other illnesses and diseases.  With the funds taken into the country we were able to get the more critical children to see a specialist in Guatemala City with the help of the local mayor and his family.  With your finacial support I will be able to go again and help these people.  Would you please support me finacially?  

I need to raise $1,600 for this trip.  My goal on GoFundMe is higher to account for the fees associated with raising money and accepting credit cards.  If you would like to support me directly via cash or check there are no fees.  GoFundMe does not provide a tax deductible receipt as this is considered a personal gift.
