“My gratitude is twofold: First, when I visited Dr. Moore’s office, you identified a blood pressure problem that I was not aware I had. Although I had visited the Clinic, twice, they somehow missed this entirely. After visiting your office, I learned that it was, in fact, dangerously high. That led me to the Georgetown Hospital’s Medical Mission in Georgetown. Thanks to you, and in no small part to them, my blood pressure is now nicely under control. Second, but most importantly, you removed the growth I had been most worried about. What I had assumed (wrongly) would be a short visit to a room where I would get a couple of shots and a little minor surgery, turned into a morning-long process where I was given the utmost care and attention. I was overwhelmed at the way you, your surgical staff and volunteers literally poured out their welcome, their attention, and good will upon me.
I do recall someone asking me if I“ worry.” I know there must be thousands of people, just like me, who worry because we cannot afford health insurance, and thus, go without necessary care. It is people like you and your volunteers who are really making a difference in the lives of people like me. May you never lose that desire to serve your fellow Kentuckians. I know your efforts have relieved some of my worry. I have had various people ask me about my bandage and I have been so happy to tell my story about Surgery on Sunday and your efforts on my behalf.
Every morning, I now rise to see that the growth is gone from my face. It feels like such a gift for which I will always be grateful. I find myself smiling more often these days.
My scar will be a reminder that I should always be prepared to pass on goodwill, either by kind word or deed, to someone else who may need it.”
