We are saddened to announce the passing of Barbara (RN) who committed so much of her time and love to the people of Arequipa Peru during and after CardioStart missions. Barbara joined us in our first missions to the site in 2006-2008 and continued going to be with her “adopted family, the many friends she made in-country on those missions”. Barbara’s strong friendships with the local Peruvian mission supporters is a perfect example of how medical missions expand your horizon’s and engrain you into a new culture. You are no longer a visitor but have a second home and family. Many of us on those early missions learned this and cherish the relationships and ongoing love. RIP dear Barbara. Thank you for being a wonderful example of CardioStart Volunteers.
