Message from Operation Walk Boston Coordinator

"Operation Walk Boston team members departed Santo Domingo today after completion of a successful mission the Dominican Republic! I would like to take this opportunity to thank our amazing group of volunteers for their hard work during the past week. Your compassion and dedication to our patients and their families will have a lasting impact on their lives. I am honored and grateful to be part of such a wonderful team and look forward to planning our mission for 2010." - Roya Ghazinouri

Operation Walk Boston 2009

Hello all - 

Yesterday many of the 40 patients went home from the hospital. Their appreciation and gratitude was truly touching. For me, this has been a fantastic reminder of why I decided to practice medicine - taking care of advanced disease in wonderful patients while working with a team of skilled and dedicated individuals committed to one common goal.

This is the last day of our trip. I believe we have done a great thing for the forty patients we treated and, just as profoundly, they have touched each of us.
