“Throughout my years of involvement, all the referred patients have been very appreciative and such a blessing to myself and our staff. Myrtle was such a joy to treat. Working with DLN is such a wonderful way to meet the needs of others with your hands and heart.”

–Dr. Ken Friday (pictured), an Alabama DLN Volunteer with his patient, Myrtle
