Medical Mission Trip to Haiti

Dr. Gray and Nurse Practitioner Tracy Papp have returned from their medical mission trip to Haiti. So many women were helped.

Cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women in Haiti. Tracy, and our nurses Bridget and Tina travelled to a different village each day to do VIA testing to aid in detecting abnormalities of the cervix. They brought their own supplies, set up a clinic, and examined 317 patients in 4 1/2 days. For abnormalities that were detected (15% of the patients), they followed up at Bonnie Fin Hospital, where Dr. Gray performed many surgeries everyday.

They are looking forward to returning next year and blessing more women.
