A darkened synagogue in Midwestern America. Two Americans are praying – one, a neurosurgeon who super-specializes in complex brain surgery involving repairing the brain’s thinnest blood vessels and dissecting tumors. The other, a social worker who lives and works in Ethiopia. What are the chances these two strangers would meet?
But they do meet, and find time to chat. Their chat then leads to a cure for an Ethiopian woman with a rare facial deformation, an orange-sized tumor in her face that was slowly taking her life.
Real life can really be stranger than any fiction we can imagine. I was really moved by this story.
