Our Surgicorps International Family lost a wonderful friend and colleague, as Dr. Sarah Pettrone lost her battle with cancer and passed away on July 26, 2014. Sarah traveled with us to Ethiopia in 2011, and twice to Bhutan—2010 and 2012, each time accompanied by one of her sisters, Kristen or Jess. She brought expertise, compassion, and care with her each and every day, and her smile (a Surgicorps Smile!!) and energy were infectious. Sarah will always be with us. Her spirit holds a permanent place on every one of our teams as we continue to do the work she so loved.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her parents, sisters, family members and many friends and colleagues during this time of loss.
