Using her two weeks of vacation from her job in Lansing, Michigan, Anne regularly volunteers as a translator and surgical trip coordinator for Interplast. Anne believes the tragic event she suffered gives her extra strength and self-confidence. As she compassionately works with the patients, it is clear that Anne has a special connection and empathy with others. Interplast is grateful for her service. In Can Lanh, Anne holds and comforts Phat Tan before his surgery for ptosis, a condition which effects the eyelid and ones ability to see.
