Memorial and Endowment Funds

  • Dr. Sarah Lantz was a general surgeon who had a desire to be a full-time missionary surgeon. She completed her Post-Residency Program at Mukinge Hospital in Zambia, Africa. Sarah was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer in July 2015 and passed away January 2016. A memorial fund has been established in Sarah’s honor to commemorate her life. Read More

    Donations will go to fund a PAACS resident’s training program. It costs $125,000 to train a PAACS resident for 5 years. Thank you for your donation!

  • Dr. Bob Cropsey is a general surgeon who was a career missionary surgeon in Togo, West Africa. Dr. Cropsey has been instrumental in starting a surgical ministry in Togo. He is still very active in their surgical ministry and envisions working towards creating a future PAACS surgical residency program for Africans. This endowment has been created to help fund surgical training of residents in Togo as a future PAACS site to honor Dr. Cropsey’s work.

    The goal is for the proposed residency program in Togo to gain all necessary approvals to become a PAACS program and admit residents in 2020 and thereafter. Please note that if approvals for the Togo residency program do not occur for any reason (including but not limited to insufficient financial resources, insufficient hospital facilities, political / government strife, etc.) and the Togo residency program cannot open, then the endowment resources will be utilized to support other PAACS surgical residency programs in other West African nations until a Togo PAACS program opens. The Endowment will remain intact.
