Viriginia has made three trips to Haiti since 2012. She said, "I just felt that we have been given so many gifts in this country that we tend to take for granted. I wanted to do what I could for those who weren’t so fortunate. I rarely see cervical cancer in my practice due to excellent screening and early treatment. Yet in countries such as Haiti it is rampant. With just a small investment of time and money, cervical cancer numbers could be drastically reduce in Haiti."
