Emergency Medicine doesn't allow for great acts of heroism, despite the common perception. I am a doctor with a border. Working in the ER brings the world to me along with the smells and the humor and the pain of the everyday human experience. I cannot look away.
Whether it's the time of year or that I see an opportunity to make a difference that reaches beyond tests and treatments, I am asking you to join me and help a young man and his family that I have recently come to know. He is 24 years old and just diagnosed with leukemia. He was transferred to Cornell for chemotherapy and will need a bone marrow transplant. His mother and younger siblings are under terrible financial strain in his absence and the medical bills are coming quickly. These are modest and kind people and they are scared. I want to help them beyond the walls of the hospital. This is not a "make-a-wish" fundraiser. This is a "make-ends-meet" fundraiser.
Please join me in giving what you can and, if you are comfortable, forwarding this along to others.
Trust me in knowing how much our monies will be appreciated by them.
