It was summer when our cousin Patty Gordon, was nominated the Distinguished Alumni Honoree at St. Louis Park High School graduation. We listened as she spoke about her accomplishments as a cancer researcher, and her amazing program, CureCervicalCancer.
So proud and inspired that weekend, we asked when and where next and if we could we help? It was Vietnam…our eyes lit up, and with out a pause, my daughter, Carli and I looked at each other and said, count us in!
We had just been watching the new Ken Burns Vietnam documentary. Now in a time when the world is in dire need for help, what a fantastic way to give back to a Vietnam, once put through the perils of war and then neglected by our own country.
We are so excited to be a part of this volunteer group, love working with the doctors, nurses and patients while screening and treating woman for the very curable cervical cancer.
It’s been a life-changing experience for us, but mostly for the lives we are saving and look forward many trips to come.
