One particular patient that came from Russia was such an inspiration. She had undergone so many surgeries over the years and had such a great attitude. I would drive home wondering how such a young person could go through so much and deal with all of the issues she had faced and always be so happy. It puts a lot into perspective for those of us that don't face the same type of challenges. Volunteering for Fresh Start helps so many children and families, and truthfully, it helps the volunteers just as much!
