It's Not What We Bring, But What We Leave Behind
by David H Beyda MD
The book contains dozens of moving stories that put faces on those desperate for healing, as well as recognition of their basic human rights. Meet Samnang, a young Cambodian girl who fell from a motorbike and sustained broken wrists, only to have her arms amputated because her family had no money for routine medical care. And there is Pastor, a minister in the Dominican Republic who dies just moments before a taxi ride to the hospital for treatment of the leg pain and heart condition he endured for years. Each story provides an intimate portrait of people like Samnang and Pastor, together with Dr. Beyda's reflections on the lessons he has learned about caring for the most wretched among us.
