Chicago pediatrician Dr. Luis Trevino
drew inspiration from tragedy.
In the Chicago Tribune
obituary, reporter Margaret Ramirez tells of Trevino’s commitment to help lower-income families, and of the joy he got from watching a young patient grow to adulthood.
At the heart of his dedication to helping kids was his horrific loss of his three small children – along with his young wife – in a car accident.
It’s a fate we wouldn’t wish on anyone… but it’s heartening to know that sometimes, great loss can lead us to do great works.
