  1. Don,

    Thanks so much for sharing your blog with us. As one of the newer employees at Resurge International (formerly Interplast) it is incredibly insightful to learn of your experiences in such vivid recollection. Thank you for your inspiration and leadership in starting this incredible organization. So many lives have been forever transformed due to your generosity. Congrats on the new blog!



  2. Don,
    Congrats on your bolg! I am sure this will be an inspiration for lots of younger surgeons to go out there and help people beyond national boundaries… and to do it straight from the heart…like you have done for so many years.Awesome.

  3. HAIL TO THE CHIEF !!! I am so glad we got to share in so many of these experiences together. The memories live indelibly in my mind and my heart. Thank you for sharing yourself with all of us who have profited from your wisdom and generousity over these many years. I look forward to reading your stories. I’m sure the will reawaken even more memories of the good old days !

  4. Don:

    Wonderful blog. Logged in just to check it out and found myself reading every entry. You may be “retired,” but you still teach elegantly via your stories. Very much looking forward to future writings.

  5. Don: You continue to inspire even more than twenty five years since I was one of your residents. The culture of growing in Plastic Surgery that you and RAC gave to us all remains with me even today. Thank you for sharing your stories. I look forward to more.

  6. Dr. Laub.
    Thank you for taking the time to share these experiences with us. We all have much to learn from you.

  7. Dad,
    Great job on the Blog! It’s wonderful to see theses stories that we grew up with written and shared with the world.

  8. Don, thank you for sharing your insights and inspirational stories. Some of them are familiar to me. As a long-time staff member of ReSurge (formerly Interplast), I’ve had the privilege of a career helping others “the right way” through your starting this NGO so long ago. I look forward to the next postings, as you continue to inspire me personally.

  9. Don, I’m glad that you are telling these stories. Among all the adventures the story of the journey to bring medical assistance to Dave Werner in the sierra madre has got to be included. Thanks for you! Kees

  10. Dear Don, I am thrilled to have found you here and to be able to read your words, which are so inspiring. I will share them with friends will also appreciate them. I look forward to reading much more of your writing in the future. I am going to share this site with Joe Limoli, who now lives in Taiwan and has dedicated his life to helping protect orphans in several countries in Asia from being sold into sex slavery. He told me to tell you that he credits you with much of his success in life because you taught him “never to take no for an answer.”

    Thanks be to God for your recovery,


  11. Hola Don ,
    Wow ! we have talked so many times, but never chat or blog. You know what I think about you. There are no sufficient words to describe your soul and friendship.
    Thanks to let me be be part of your friends.

  12. It is most gratifying to see some of the history from the 60s & 70s. Although I used the Hesperian books when I was working in the Sierra Madre of Guerrero, Mexico from ’76-79, I was not aware of Dr. Laub. The interesting coincidence is that we did a cleft palate & hare lip clinic in the mountains in 1979 with a Mexican plastic/reconstructive surgeon who had done some post grad work @ John Hopkins (name unfortunately forgotten) & the chief of the dept @ U of Texas, San Antonio (Don Greer, Jr). I am still using the books from the Hesperian Foundation which grew out of Piaxtla ( I think) to this day in Uganda, Nepal. Looking for a new project in Latin America if anyone has ideas…
