What does it mean to heal and be healed? We asked our co-founder Dr. Paul Farmer: "To cure is the greatest privilege in medicine. To heal is a broader goal, and one that can't be reached without our patients and their families. Being with former patients, now survivors, is certainly the way they heal us, the caregivers. They remind us how lucky we are to be a part, even a small part, of what it takes to truly heal."
Healing can also happen in the space of a hug, the warmth of a smile, or the length of a story. Share your story of healing, or see what it means to others, here: http://buff.ly/1Nz1LPP
