Kelly Lea - recently traveled to Cali, Columbia South America for a medical mission. The mission lasted 6 days in which the orthopedic team, which Kelly is a part of, performed 57 surgeries and saw approximately 350 patients in the clinic. Kelly along with her colleagues were able to touch the lives of so many people, whether it was assuring a parent that their child’s flat feet were normal or surgically fixing a severe congenital deformity that would allow the patient to walk again. According to Kelly, every aspect of the mission was life changing. She was amazed at the strength, passion and gratefulness of everyone they saw. In Kelly words; “no is no better gift than that of being able to give to others” She can not wait to return next year. So proud of you Kel!
