Dear Family and Friends,
I have been given the opportunity to travel to Guatemala to volunteer for the Range of Motion Project non profit.
I will be working alongside many skilled clinicians for 10 days, to provide care to Guatemalans with amputation and to exchange best-practices in prosthetic care and physical and occupational therapy.
To be able to attend, I ask for your help! The program fee is $1500, all donations go towards materials and my housing while I put my Prosthetic and Orthotic Skills to work!
While I do my best to save, any donation will help ensure that I make it. Any donations past $1500, will go towards my flights which are not included in the program fee.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and for your support in making this opportunity possible!

This program gives volunteers the opportunity to work alongside ROMP-Guatemala staff to provide care to Guatemalans with amputation and to exchange best-practices in prosthetic care and physical and occupational therapy. Volunteers will put their skills into action, taking a group of patients from evaluation and casting to delivery and training in an intense clinical week in Zacapa. They impact both patients and staff, and walk away with a greater understanding of the issues facing people with amputation in Guatemala.
