A new laptop for Nick who dreams of becoming a surgeon

Posted Jan 29, 2018

Anonymous grants the wish for Nick! Thanks Anonymous.

Nick, I am both a surgeon and a foster parent. There is nothing better than being able to help someone, whether it's me getting a computer for you, or you helping patients when YOU become a surgeon. Its a long road, but well worth it. I'm in practice for 40 years, and still love what I do. Best of luck !!!!!
