Death of a doc

A few months ago on a segment of 5×8, I passed along this story of Dr. David Nichols, a doctor who “adopted” an island in the Chesapeake Bay and brought health care to those who needed it. Even after he retired, he continued to fly to the island. He said it was “a moral obligation.”

Word comes today that Dr. Nichols died yesterday.

NBC’s Nightly News did this segment on Dr. Nichols a few months ago. Here’s a Kleenex.

    Bittersweet year end story indeed. May his clinic become an inspiration for all who truly care about humanity.
