  • Miracles bring faith to the cynical

    Joan Chipkar is one of those people I can’t say no to.

    In 2004, after Florida was hit by hurricanes, she convinced me to go with her to do laundry for health department staff working in the hardest hit area.

    Last year, when her beloved therapy dog Charlie died, I wrote an obituary column about the brown and white cocker spaniel.

    And when she called last week to ask me to write about her miracle great-grandson Landon in Alabama, I didn’t say yes, but I didn’t say no.

    Earlier this year, The Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky asked more than 1,600 Kentuckians a simple question: What do you think is the most pressing healthcare issue for our citizens? The answer given most often was a word no one wants to hear: Cancer.

    There’s good reason why it’s the top health concern, because in the Commonwealth it’s the leading cause of death among women and a close second behind heart disease in men.  Unfortunately, it’s also more prevalent here than in other states.
