Thanks for supporting medical group
To the Editor:
I would like to extend a very special thank you to everyone that believed in the possibility of something greater for our friends in Nicaragua.
We were very busy while there and through our collaborative efforts we provided routine well being care and advanced medical surgeries for those in need. We facilitated “Hands Only” CPR awareness workshops, sudden cardiac arrest awareness classes, and automated external defibrillator trainings for over 200 doctors, nurses, and firefighters.
In addition to this, through generous donations, we were able to deploy another three automated external defibrillators to much-needed areas that otherwise had no life saving medical equipment.
It was a huge success and could not have been achieved without people like you.
I am so proud to share with you those who contributed; Central Maine Heart and Vascular Institute Medical Reimbursement Service, Pine Tree Cellular, Gallant’s Furniture, Bessey’s Auto, Webb River Sportman’s Club, Rumford Rotary, Mountain Valley Eye Care, Lifesavers Inc., Silicon Valley Bank, Cardiac Science.
Leading the way in spectacular customer relations was Bill Menke, who heard of our transportation dilemma and took action. With that being said, Lee Auto Mall provided transportation at no charge to and from Auburn to Boston for the entire 21-member medical group from Maine, supplying us with three passenger vans and one cargo van for our luggage.
