A Sad Loss

On Friday, two climbers fell to their death on Mt. McKinley. One of these climbers was Dr. Andrew Swanson; an orthopedic surgeon from Mankato, Minnesota.

I'm posting about his death here, because he will be missed not only in his hometown and his home state...but also in Ghana. He volunteered his time there to perform surgeries on children who needed corrective spinal surgery.

His life touched many. His hands healed many who otherwise had no hope of a normal life. A sad loss, indeed.
