My name is Cecille Cruz and I am currently a senior at Chamberlain College of Nursing. I have been accepted to go on what may be the biggest opportunity in my college career - a two-week service project where I will be providing medical support to underserved communities in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil.
Please watch my video to learn more:
As you can see, many of these patients have never seen a doctor, nurse, or dentist - not by choice but because they have no means and lack healthcare options to do so. A previous group who went to Brazil saw 1,140 patients and performed 3,974 procedures. Imagine what kind of differences can be made in the lives of these patients!
I realize that budgets are tight, but please be as generous as you are able. The money raised will go towards:
travel insurance card
Anything raised past $3,300 will be used for purchasing medications at the pharmacy for the Brazilian patients.
I am greatly appreciative of any support you are able to give. Any little bit helps and everything will be utilized towards this incredible opportunity. A heartfelt thank you to YOU for helping me throughout this journey!
