Compassionate Giving

Bless all those who help others, especially at their own peril. Stay safe, my friend.


Dr. Larry Stock, my friend from working in the Antelope Valley Emergency Room, is helping Ebola patient’s in Africa. See what he writes below the photo.

Donning the “suit” is an essential step before entering the “hot zone”. This is where we treat diagnosed Ebola patients. Entering this completely closed protection requires the help of a tender. Each component part of this uniform is essential and must be respected. Once inside, it is like a sauna, and feels claustrophobic. I am getting more comfortable and acclimated to working under these conditions. Each day is long, but I am meeting fascinating people every day, and continue to grow and learn.

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

    Exceptional people who help at their own peril. Admirable.

    • Yes, he is. He goes to other places and helps as well, last I heard he went into the back country in Thailand to help teach fundamental emergency medicine to the people with no access to medical care–lay people. He’s since enlisted medical students and other doctors. I was very fortunate to work with him in the second busiest ER in L.A. County. ❤

  2. Bless him and all the good people helping there. ❤ ❤ ❤

    Dr.Stock and brave and generous beings like him, is where that over used word, which has to a large degree lost its significance, reclaims its true meaning. Bravo kind sir to you and your fellow givers, for this gift to those poor people whom without your presence have no hope!

    Courage and compassion at its finest!

    Respect to the people who are helping in bad condition and danger for their own life people all over the world who has no future and hope without them

  6. If only there were more folks like Dr Stock. I have great admiration for him. I commend Dr Stock who I feel deserves to be honored. May many blessings be bestowed upon him where ever he serves. Here’s wishing him good health and safe travels.

  7. There are those who sit around and bemoan the tragedies of the world, and then there are those courageous souls who go out and do something about those tragedies. I’m in awe of the compassion and selflessness of people like Dr. Stock.

  8. God bless him and all others doing this work!

  9. What a truly inspiring man and acknowledgement from you.

    • He is a good soul indeed. Admirable like so many others out there putting their lives on the line to help others. There are a lot of heroes among us common folk — I just wish the news would highlight more of them and less of all the awful news. Big hug to you Yisraela. ❤
