Many around the world do not have access to health care.
With travelling to SO many Dr appointments these past few months in dealing with 'Breast Cancer' both my husband and I said we are grateful to live close to the hospital. I show my health care card. The receptionist checks me in, I go up the elevator to the third floor. The nurse checks a few things about me. Shortly the Dr calls me to the seventh floor for surgery then to recovery room for an hour and back to day surgery, the nurse checks a few things about me again then my husband drives me home. Sounds simple enough.
Not so simple for those in poorer nations. I really appreciate having found out about Mercy Ships a few years ago. They offer free surgery to many families who have walked miles to the port where their ship is docked. There have been 5,000 medical treatments on the 'Africa Mercy Ship' in 2016 in Madagascar and Benin. They look forward to being of service in Benin and Cameroon in 2017.
Doctors, Nurses, Hair Dressers, Baristas, Cooks, Janitors and others are volunteers on the ship.
I like this Happy New Year message from Mercy Ships. https://vimeo.com/196506545
For us all in 2017 . . . . . I wish a positive input routine from watching eatingyoualive.com on the movie screen, as we make our insides clean with dandelion greens after we've finished being a jumping bean on a mini trampoline.
Happy New Year
With Love and Encouragement,
