Creating Smiles, Improving Lives

A Beautiful Morning

A Beautiful Morning

During rounds on Thursday morning, Dr. Erika Sato (left) and Dr. David Wainwright share a moment with one of their 20 mission patients, 16-year-old Ingrid Coc Borrayo.

Frightened that she would look “fea” (ugly), Ingrid cried for several minutes after regaining consciousness in the recovery room on Wednesday. With translation help from volunteer Nickolas Prahl, nurse Angie Englert assured the teenager that she would look even more beautiful than before.
