New memoir from Medical Teams International founder details how he went from abuse victim to global Good Samaritan
In his new memoir, “Unchained: A Man’s Journey from Abuse to Healing to Saving Lives,” Ron Post readily admits he should not be the founder of a global medical humanitarian organization. He never envisioned receiving the National Jefferson Award for being a changemaker or being named one of “America’s Unsung Heroes” by Newsweek magazine. According to Post, he was a simple businessman with a family when an evening news story forever altered his life.
