"It all started in the summer of 2012 when our mom shattered her kneecap in Jamaica..."

It all started in the summer of 2012 when our mother (Susie) fell and shattered her kneecap in Jamaica while we were on vacation. We took her to the local hospital, and our experience there showed us how much we took our way of life for granted. Patients awaiting treatment lined the floors and flustered nurses rushed around trying in vain to find simple medical equipment that the hospital did not have. When the nurse that treated our mother went to cut the bandage off of her knee, she had to use office scissors because the hospital lacked enough medical shears. Still, even with the extremely limited supplies, the staff there worked hard to make sure that our mother got the best care possible. With the new realization of just how lucky we are to live comfortable lives every day, we became determined to make a difference in the lives of others.
