You may recall that back in May we told you about Fabio, a former patient who we first met on a trip to Bolivia in 2011. Back then, he had been in a bad car accident that had nearly cost him his arm—leaving him with a hand that he could not move or use for everyday activities.
He fell into a depression, thinking he would no longer finish his studies or have a future.
Things could have ended there. But instead he was referred to Dr. Jorge Terrazas, our medical partner in Bolivia, who told him about ReSurge. Over the next couple of years, Dr. Terrazas and our volunteer surgical teams provided surgery to enable Fabio to use his hand again, along with physical therapy to help regain his strength.
We were able to meet up with him in May and see how now, he can open and grab things with it normally. He has finished school, married and even started his own business.
To see and hear in Fabio's own words the incredible difference our medical partners and volunteers have made in his life, watch the video interview above or click here.
This is just one testament of the work of our international medical partner, Dr. Jorge Terrazas, and his team. We are looking forward to honoring his commitment at our upcoming Transformations Gala in October.
We hope you will join us if you are able to see and hear about the work of Dr. Terrazas and others in person!
