Patient Shares Musical Gift with Infusion Center

Ted Kearns of Rixeyville has been battling colon and liver cancer for several years and has been receiving treatment at Fauquier Hospital’s Infusion Center since last July. He says, “I’ve been through some dark times, but most days, I feel great.”

He appreciates Dr. Syed Salman Ali, of Fauquier Health Hematology/Oncology, and all the nurses and staff in the Infusion Center. “Everybody here has been wonderful to me. I feel very comfortable here,” he said. He appreciates them so much, in fact, that he spent his 77th birthday brightening up the Infusion Center with karaoke music. Ted sings karaoke most Thursday nights at the Inn at Kelly’s Ford, and wanted to share his special gift with his Infusion Center friends.

Ted’s friend, Mike Tornatore, provided the sound equipment, and patients and staff were treated to four musical numbers. The music was great and the applause generous.
