Compassion Stories

It Only Takes One Second to Do Some Good

Ronald Perry, Volunteer Medical Provider

When Good News Clinics volunteer medical provider Dr. Ronald Perry first encountered his patient, a woman in her early 70’s, she was struggling to walk with a swollen foot and a borrowed cane. For two months, she had suffered with an undiagnosed and untreated broken foot. Dr. Perry didn’t want her to have to wait any longer on medical care that he knew he could help give that day. So he invited her to his clinic to get x-rays and was able to confirm her injury, treat her immediately, and send her home with a new pink cast.

“When she first came to see me at the Clinics, she was accompanied by one of her children. When she came in to my office for a recheck to see how her injury was healing, three family members arrived with her. At her last check-in, the whole family came to rejoice with their matriarch that she got the care she needed. It’s an easy thing to be able to show some kindness.”
