Two Countries - One Mission

This mission starts with a story.  The story of a young mother with three children in Mexico.  She was injured and suffered from a deformed hip joint.   As a result, she was unable to find work.   Dr. Miller wanted to help her and found a surgical center in her city.  He performed the surgery with his team. Months later, she has found work and is able to support her family.   She told him about a close friend who had a similar joint problem and that friend was Dr. Miller's second surgery.

And so the mission began, to perform pro bono orthopedic surgeries in Mexico to help people who want to lead productive lives.  Donations help defer costs of buying the necessary specialized joints, renting the surgical center and any other fees the surgeries incur - guaranteed.  Dr Miller, the orthopedic surgeon, the anesthesiologist, the physical therapist and all other medical personnel donate their time and a majority of the supplies.  There are many charities designed to help those in need. This one helps our neighbors just to the south and in the words of its first beneficiary
"changes lives."
