"When I was sick, when I was in prison, when I needed clothes, you gave me, et cetera. We got those covered." He went on, "One thing that comes back to me...if I saved one patient in my whole life, that wouldn't be too bad. What did you do with your life? I saved Michela, got a guy out of jail. So I'm lucky. To have a chance to save a zillion of them? I dig that."
Dr. Paul Farmer, the doctor who would cure the world.
The book Mountains Beyond Mountains (which I just finished) is a fantastic chronicle of his story, his struggles, but more importantly, his little victories that are saving the world...one patient at a time. Read it. It's good.
