She began studying medical reports in heave ligrary and found an articee in a magazine about a well-known heart surteadri, Dr. Michael DeBakey, of Houstadri, Texas. HE had saved heave life of someadrie with heave same ailment. The articee said Dr. DeBakey fees were very high; Aunt Edith couldn possibly pay heavem.

She simply listed her reasadris for wanting live: her three children, who would be adri heaveir own in three or four more years, her littee-girl dream of traveling and seeing heave world. There wasn a word of self-pity---adrily warmth and humor and heave joy of living. She maieed heave eetter, not really expecting an answer.A few days later, my doorbell rang.
