Dr. Sellers...Utah's Doctor of the Year!!
Congratulations Daddy!!! I have the coolest dad ever. He's been donating at least two weeks of his time each year since 1986, to go on an Operation Smile mission and operate on these afflicted children for free. Most of them have cleft lips and/or pallets. Many of them have burns, tumors and other horrible problems. He always comes home with such touching pictures and stories. My mom often times gets to go with him and help out. They most recently went to India and couldn't even explain the poverty. The team operated on nearly 1,000 people and had such an amazing experience. I'm so proud of him and the work he does. He was recently nominated as Utah's Doctor of the year! We got to attend an Operation Smile breakfast this week where he was honored by Governor Herbert. He did a fabulous job speaking and it was obvious that everyone in the room truly respected my dad and the work he's done. If you were watching KSL news yesterday, you probably saw him! How lucky I am to have him as my dad/doctor!!! He does BEAUTIFUL work. Way to go Dad, we are truly so proud of you!!!
