When I heard about Operation Happenis I knew I wanted to be a part of it! I was sitting across the table from Dr. Nicol Bush. She was telling me all about her hopes and dreams for Operation Happenis. As she shared her heart my heart couldn’t help but hurt for all the moms and dads and children who don’t talk about what they have been through because it might be too sensitive of a subject. I heard the need for support and I wanted to help make that happen.
A family member was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and I know how much better it made her feel that she was not alone. Seeing pink ribbons everywhere is a constant reminder of the support she has. Can we do something like this for boys and men?
The founders of Operation Happenis sent me a list of things that they were trying to accomplish over the next several months. Immediately I saw areas I was skilled in and my heart quickened!I contacted them back and said I could help with the social media side of things and getting things set up online. Not only was it exciting to work on this project, but I was comfortable working on it. Because I was able to help in an area I already had experience in, it made my project fun and easy! Knowing my efforts could have the potential of helping people was just the cherry on top!
I plan to continue donating my time and talents to Operation Happenis. This organization is great and it’s growing quickly! Hypospadias is the second most common birth defect in the world and so few know about it…but not for long! With more volunteers and donations we can make a difference! I am all about spreading the Happenis!
