One of my heros...

Yeah, that would be Sue Walsh. Anesthesiologist nurse. Sporting a scout bag she bought from...ME!
But that isn't why she is my hero, although it helps!
No, it's because she still manages to look way cool while in Bangladesh, India volunteering her time for Operation Smile.

"More than 200,000 children are born with a severe cleft condition each year — often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places these children are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a normal life.
That's where we come in as an international charity providing much needed surgical services. Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers — has provided free surgeries to children around the world. As one of the most prominent children’s charities in the world and with a presence in over 60 countries, we are able to heal children’s smiles and bring hope for a better future."

So c'mon, isn't she awesome? AND do you believe how cool it is that she had a Scout bag in the OR?
Love you Sue!

She is a hero no doubt! Operation smiles is such an amazing charity I can imagine a child not smiling.

I do a lot of work with Op Smile and it is a wonderful charity! I will definitely be taking my scout bags with me when I go on a mission!

When I hear about women like Sue, it makes me feel a tad insignificant. People like her are the ones that make a difference in peoples lives, and to me, that is what life is all about.
(I love that she took your bag across the world :-)

Royar- that would be awesome and good for you that you give your time when I know you are so busy with school and such.
