Attendees this year experienced wonderful night. One of the many highlights was seeing the follow up video of Julio Rafael. It's a great example of why we do what we do and the video played during dinner to the delight of the audience.
It was 3 years ago that Julio’s life was changed for the better by a hip surgery performed by Dr. Paul Duwelius. Last January when we were back in the Dominican Republic we caught up with JR to see how he was doing, post-surgery. It was an amazing and emotional reunion when we visited his home and a smiling JR walked, without a hitch, to greet us and take part in an interview.
Check out the video below to experience the reunion and get a glimpse of the impact Operation Walk Freedom to Move has on its patients.
"Movement is life, freedom, and independence."
-Dr. Paul Duwelius, Founder of Freedom to Move
