FACES In the Waiting Room

The FACES operating rooms are busy places here in northern Peru, but the waiting areas may be even more bustling with activity, families and supporters of the FACES campaign. This morning we went into the waiting area to talk with some of the patients before their surgery. Meet one below:

Name: Hernan
Age: 5 years old
What does he do for fun?: “Futbol, of course!” he says.
Future career path: Professional soccer player.
Current feeling: Hernan says he is excited for his surgery. He is even more excited to take home one of the soccer balls FACES brought down to Peru for patients.
