A Passion for Giving

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” This quote from Winston Churchill reflects the message of giving and the reason one generous man chooses to give to the Women’s Center.

Edward Weber, 88, of Cincinnati is a dear friend of Lisa Larkin, MD, FACP, NCMP, IF and a frequent donor to the Women’s Center. The Maple Knoll resident and former vice president of United Dairy Farmers began his friendship with Dr. Larkin when he became her patient. “Dr. Larkin has taken me in as a good friend,” said Weber. I don’t know why I am so fortunate to know her.”

One of Edward’s fondest memories of Dr. Larkin is when she took time from her vacation to stay informed of his care. “When I was very sick on New Year’s Eve, I called her,” said Weber. “She sent me to the hospital and called the hospital before I got there. She told them to call her with the results, which they did at 2 a.m. She called me at my bedside at 7 a.m. and then called the doctors at the hospital. I found out later that she was on vacation.”

Because of his friendship with Dr. Larkin, generous nature, and enjoyment of helping others, Edward often donates to the Women’s Center. “I like to help people when I see they have a need,” he said. “It makes me feel good to know that I can help others, it enriches my life.”
