Dr. Jensen Reaches Out!
- Posted on: Jun 30 2016
During the last five years, Dr. Jensen has had the privilege to join Utah Medical Outreach, a nonprofit organization, along with other medical and professional volunteers, to provide much-needed medical aid to needy children, individuals, and families located in Central America.
“It’s always an honor to participate,” Dr. Jensen said of the mission. “I always return with amazing stories and life-changing experiences.”
For many people in Guatemala, medical care is difficult to impossible to find. Here is one such story.
One of the patients that made a big impression on Dr. Jensen was a woman with a badly burned hand. Scar tissue from the burn had fused her pinky to the rest of her hand, not only limiting her dexterity but causing her a lot of pain and discomfort. Dr. Jensen was able to surgically separate the finger and amputate the nonfunctional finger. As you can imagine, she was so happy to have relief from the pain and to have full use of her hand again. You can see from the photos that Dr. Jensen was very happy too!
“We owe a lot of credit for our success to the fact that we had ample medical supplies which we were able to acquire through generous donations,” Dr. Jensen explained. Without monetary donations from people like you, such humanitarian missions wouldn’t be possible. Dr. Jensen would like to invite you to consider donating to this worthy cause by visiting the www.utahmedicaloutreach.org.
