Mr. Benitez Cruz started working at age 6 and by the time he turned 60, his back hurt so much he didn’t even know how to get through the day. When he was offered surgery by a volunteer physician, he said yes even knowing it would be difficult. He thanks his doctor and tells us the program has been really good for him and to him and he would not be where he is today without it. He is now able to drive his wife to work and pick up his grandchildren.
