What’s in a letter? Plenty, because letters are an intimate connection to both friends and strangers. Letters keep relationships vital and dreams alive. And Dr. Patch Adams has a dream—to build a unique type of hospital that offers not just top-quality medical care but the exact sort of compassionate and joyful care that Adams is known for around the world. In pursuit of this goal, he has written and received over 40,000 letters from people all around the world, stories of heartbreak and miracles, and of mercies large and small. In Letters to Patch, Dr. Patch Adams shares some of the best of these letters, not just from patients seeking answers, but from medical practitioners who yearn to bring compassion and caring back to modern medicine. Alternately heart-wrenching and inspiring, here are the letters that have kept Patch’s dream of loving care for all alive for over 30 years.
