See the blue sky?  The weather was perfect that day!

Although some of our students had to stand when everyone arrived,
they sure enjoyed the program.

Now you can browse through the rest of the audience

Happy New Year!

We hope all our friends and supporters are enjoying a 
great beginning filled with blessings in this new year of 2015!

You can only imagine the happiness of the patients and their families
as the quality of life of the patients improves significantly!

When they arrived, Dr. Ramon Ruiz Diaz (center)
greeted his colleagues, their returning anesthesiologists.
They call themselves the Partners in Crime!

Everyone was as happy to be here as we were to have them here!

Like all of our visiting teams do, they brought their own equipment.

Now for some action pictures, for this is why they came!

Every now and then, the "Partners in Crime" were able to sit down--if only for a moment.

This is what we have to say to the team, and all of their supporters, on behalf of their patients:


We already are looking forward to their next visit!

Have a nice day, take care, and God bless!
