The purpose of the fundraiser is to help with the expenses in permforming surgeries
on children born with cleft lip/palate deformities. On April 29, Dr. Richard
Scheetz, a Mission of Love volunteer, will travel to Guatemala City, Guatemala to
complete 30 surgeries that will allow 30 children to smile.
Our Mission of Love surgery team consists of, Doctor Guillermo Chacon, Doctor Todd
Bolitin, Cindy Scheetz, Derrick Scheetz, Chuck Scheetz, Kurt Zabel, Dakota
Williamson, Joyce Rush, and Bob Price and Kathy Price.
“These children need to thrive and smile,” said Mission of Love founder Kathy
Price. “They want to smile and no longer be outcasts of their community.”
Without the surgery, the children have little hope.
The April trip will be the sixth annual trip that volunteer surgical teams have
made to help the children. Price said the surgical team members all donate their
time and pay to make the trip out of their own pockets. The funds from events like
the upcoming on at Maggie's Magic Muffins, goes towards surgical supplies
that are not available in Guatemala.
