I'm excited to be back in Cambodia! Please consider donating to support this mission to expand excellent pediatric care around the world!

I'm excited to report my third trip to Phnom Penh, Cambodia to volunteer on an educational mission to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the National Pediatric Hospital (NPH) on behalf of my home PICU at Children's Hospital Boston is underway! However, our funding is limited and I'm asking for your help to support this important mission!

As many of you know, the medical care available in the developing world is lacking. Due to limited funds, supplies and governmental restrictions, the PICU at NPH struggles every day to provide their staff with adequate and necessary training to care for critically ill patients. Our goal is to provide essential nursing and medical knowledge to the staff here in an effort to help them improve patient outcomes. We believe that even the smallest changes can drastically improve the care being delivered here in Cambodia. As a leading institution in pediatric critical care, the MISCU at Boston Children's feels it is our duty to help spread this knowledge and access around the world.

We are in the process of grant applications yet again, but due to the small nature of the project, funding has been slow to come. This is where I need your help!

I believe in this project so much that each time I have come (I'm now on my third trip!) I have donated my money to pay for the costs associated with it. With the help of many of you, we have been able to fundraise much of that cost back each time - but we're asking for your help yet again!

And Good News! This time you can make a TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation as long as the amount is of $249 or less. As soon as you make an online donation or send a check, I can send you the tax-ID number for our non-profit organization, "The MISCU Cans for Care Sister PICU Project" on behalf of the non profit Children's Hospital Boston and you can claim the donation.

I cannot thank you enough for your support in the past, present and future! Please consider supporting this cause!
