This story melted my heart. Maybe a better name for this doctor would be “Dr. Santa.”

Dr. Omar Atiq who resides in Arkansas decided this year he was going to send a little extra love to his patients. In December 2020 he sent out greeting cards to nearly 200 patients of the Arkansas Cancer Clinic with a note telling them their outstanding balances were forgiven.

I cried.

Dr. Omar Atiq said the decision was easy, especially after such a tough year. “People have lost jobs. People have lost income. People are just in bad situations.” Dr. Atiq erased about $650,000 total of patient debt. You can see more on this incredible story here.
