Travel from NJ to Brasilia (the capital of Brazil) was no small feat. We left for Miami on Tuesday to meet up with colleagues later that day so we could fly into Brasilia together on a red-eye, to arrive Wednesday morning.
Our mission was to carry in 120 hearing aids (generously donated by Widex), 300 receivers, hundreds of dome tips, batteries, and wax filters with us to Brasilia. We were fortunate to have received this Widex shipment early enough to unpack and repack it into small bundles (a herculean effort by office mates Brittney and Brandi), all while managing a busy Monday schedule of patients. By God’s grace (and lots of little meltdowns later), we did it!
