Excerpt:

"Why do you do this?" People ask me that question all the time.

It's been fourteen years since I launched Global Medical Relief Fund, a little charity I run out of
a former walk-in closet in my Staten Island townhouse. Fourteen years of answering emails from Bosnia, Iraq, and Africa in the middle of the night. Fourteen years of spending most of my paycheck to bring one more child here for a new leg or arm—a new life. Eleven years since I left my ordinary nine-to-five job as a medical assistant in order to do anything and everything but the ordinary.
During this time I've given up sleep, any hope of a vacation, and my marriage. (Not to mention a place to hang my clothes!)
I've given up a lot, so I understand the question. But look what I've gained.
