Casey Perkins: One of my hereos

IMGP0926

Here I pose with my buddy Casey Perkins.  I read about Casey  years ago when he was severely burned in a fire from a Christmas tree.  I have had the honor to reconnect with Casey recently and we have been trying some of the new scar lasers on his burn scars and skin grafts.  We are starting slow but have gained some progress and will continue treatment as long as Casey wants to.  He is literally one of the favorite patients in our office and my staff is always excited to see him. He is one of the toughest people I have ever met and has a giant heart.  To my surprise, Casey painted a portrait of me and I was really touched for several reasons.  Number one, that he put his personal time in to this art and number two, he truly captured my “energy” in this picture.  It proudly hangs in my office and each time I look at it I think of Casey.  By the way Casey, you could have painted some  hair on my head and made my arms bigger!

Casey, knowing you makes my life better.
