On January 12, 2010, the world reached out to the people of Haiti following their catastrophic 7.0 magnitude earthquake that reduced the entire capital city of Port-au-Prince to rubble and ruin. Unfortunately much of the relief aid was slow to arrive due to damaged transportation facilities and chaos. But that didn’t stop chiropractor Rennie Statler of Danbury, CT. Within nine days of the devastating event, he, along with a handful of colleagues, was on a jet plane heading south — leaving his comfortable office and familiar surroundings to hand-deliver supplies of food, water, and of course, chiropractic care to the hurting Haitian country.
