Hey, I have been busting my ass for about a year. I decided to give myself a extra edge by getting some shadowing experience. However, finding a Doctor in NYC to shadow is freaking difficult, especially Surgery.
So, I networked with people, and classmates- and my classmate Albert whose uncle is a world renowned Endoscopic Surgeon (based in Coahuila, Mexico)- Dr. Alvarez .
I decided to contact him. I started communication with him in January, and had the awesome opportunity to visit his practice a few times. Last month, I asked him if he was willing to receive me as an intern. To my amazement, he was planning on asking me.
I accepted a summer surgical internship in Mexico...I was excited. However, The more I thought about it, the more It feels unrealistic. Hotels are fucking expensive, even if its 3 blocks by the border. I also need scrubs, and a kit, plane tickets, and food. Dr. Alvarez, was nice enough to front 500 dollars of his own money towards my stay. I also have 700 dollars saved.
So Now, I am asking everyone to chip in. Everybit counts. 5000 will cover everything for the 8 weeks for which I am staying. All proceeds goes to the trip, and all donors will receive copies of receipt if they wish.
PLEASE! Understand that the money is not for the Internship. There is no charge for coming into his practice and Interning-Otherwise I would not be here "spanging". The money will help me with my trip from New York City, to Mexico(Flight from LaGuardia, to Dulles, and Bus from Dulles to Coahuila), hotel, travel to and from the practice to my hotel, food, and water.
ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED....
All donors will get receipt of all purchases when requested.
All donors, will recieve a personalized thank you letter from me, and pictures
