Short biography
In 1991, Danner and his wife sold their house, medical practices, and possessions to travel to a remote village in the Indian Himalayas to help a gifted Indian surgeon -- in exchange for teaching them how to provide health care using basic tools and medicines.

"This man was doing amazing things with very little in the way of equipment and modern medicines, and we wanted to learn from him. Unfortunately, when we got there, he had left three days earlier, for a nine month training program in Uganda," explained Danner.

Language and cultural barriers didn't stop the adventurous duo from forging ahead, often by themselves. Not all their work was as successful as the all-night surgery. On one occasion, they helplessly watched a young woman die of an infection they could have treated back home, and, in another series of cases, they tried, in vain, to find a cure for a mysterious epidemic of kidney failure that killed three boys.
