An amazing story of an equally amazing woman. Mary travels to many continents, sometimes during war to offer her nursing/healing skills to those most in need. Although Mary encounters obstacles in getting to where she can be of help, she always manages to persevere and succeed and is able to use the talents and skills she is so eager to share.
