Hi Friends & Family!
As some of you may know I am currently in my 2nd year of pursuing a M.S. in Orthotics & Prosthetics. I am excited about a unique opportunity to travel to Quito, Ecuador with a group called Range of Motion Project (ROMP) this summer. I will be spending 10 days using the knowledge I have learned giving prosthetic care to people in the area that greatly need the attention. I am looking forward to furthering my understanding in the O&P field while at the same time affecting many people's lives in a positive and rewarding way. Any donations are greatly appreciated and will go towards my travel, housing, and supplies needed during my trip. If i am able to exceed my goal, the extra money will go towards other ROMP projects.
Thank you all so much!

This program gives volunteers the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with practitioners from ROMP and Fundación Hermano Miguel to provide world-class prosthetic care and physical and occupational therapy to Ecuadorians with amputation who otherwise do not have access to these services. Volunteers will serve through an intense clinical week at the world-class Fundación Hermano Miguel rehabilitation facility. They will play a key role in remobilizing Ecuadorian patients and exchanging knowledge and skills with local practitioners.
