Dr. Khazanchi, our plastic surgeon who ultimately made all of this possible, has now become a fund-raiser as well! He called me on Friday to tell me the good news: one of his patients who also has an expander just like Meher had been waiting with Meher and started talking to her. She became interested and ask Dr. Khazanchi about the charity project. He gave her all the background, and she was inspired by the story and wanted to donate. So her parents gave a donation to Dr. Khazanchi right away!
I went to Dr. Khazanchi's house yesterday to pick up the donation. Here he is with his wife, son, and nephew. His wife is also a physician and very committed to community service.
