A Mission to Haiti, a Mission at Home
Oral surgeon Steve Moriconi went on a medical mission to Haitian after the earthquake. While treating victims he found a tumor in the jaw of a 31-year-old woman. Back at home, he was haunted by the knowledge that without help, Adeline Joachim, in Haiti, would surely suffer and even die. "We have to try to bring her here," he said, and his hospital, friends, family and coworkers made it happen.
