Akron Children's Hospital

Today was a special day. For not going to medical school I sure have spent a lot of time over the years visiting people in hospitals. This afternoon I went to visit an eleven year old fan at Akron Children's Hospital. Upon entering the room her parents said it was the first time she had a full smile in over a week. Her illness wasn't discussed. I only brought words of encouragement and optimism. She reciprocated and thanked me over and over for my visit. I never forget for a moment that my life's journey has landed me in this room to help this little girl at this moment. Nothing I do in my career can carry more weight than reaching individuals like her. Bringing out that smile is the sole reason I do what I do.
