  10. Starting in a small village in Ethiopia, and ending at our own Lenox Hill Hospital.

    Fourteen-year-old Aster was born with a tumor growing in her neck.  With no doctors in her remote village to remove it, it kept growing and growing, until it was too big for any doctor or hospital in all of Ethiopia.

    Aster needed a miracle.

    What she found was Dr. Jim Alpers, WHFC parent and Medical Mission volunteer.  He became her champion, working tirelessly to bring Aster on the trip of a lifetime.

    Come hear the story from Jim first-hand, a mile from where it all came together.
