2nd Chance does reconstructive surgery in emerging countries. Their catchy motto is: “Reconstruction Surgery for Life Reconstruction”. It’s a non-profit organization based in Switzerland.
Meanwhile, over in the USA, a guy named Gregory Grobon is biking across the country. He is doing that to support 2nd Chance. He’s riding from Los Angeles to New York, travelling 5,770 km (over 3,500 miles) through 14 states, in 9 weeks.
Follow Gregory’s progress on the Biking USA website.
For more information on 2nd Chance, go to their website. The association “provides the academic and technical framework needed by surgeons who are willing to use their knowledge to help traumatized patients. Mutilated by congenital defects, burns or war wounds, or suffering from crippling diseases, many people are waiting for a surgical treatment which will enable them to reconstruct their lives.”
