At a time when there is so much bad news in the media, I came across this touching story. It speaks for itself, but for doctors, it is a humbling and rejuvenating reminder of exactly what role we play in the lives of others. For patients, it is a great story about giving back and gratefulness. There is much to inspire all of us. Because positive stories and optimism should be more infectious than the opposite, please share this story with others.
