panamamccormackfoundation to see a picture of the hand and other legs I have fit.
Tom, you are a wonderful man.
Tom, a good friend of mine and legendary local birding guide from Boquete has sadly lost a leg due to diabetes. I have already arranged to donate a wheelchair to him, but it would be a real blessing if you could put him on the list for a prosthetic leg. Please contact me!
Tom, I am happy to assist in you in your humanitarian efforts while in David, if help is needed. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. Your willingness to provide these services will change the lives of those who are lucky to receive your services upon arrival. Thank you, from the residents of Boquete.
It's been 4 months since my post to Mr. Thomas McCormack, and I've also sent him an email from my yahoo email account to his foundation with no response. Very strange.
I don't know what e-mail address you used but here it is. email@example.com
I have hundreds of pounds of prosthetic supplies to arrive in David the last part of this Oct.Your friend needs to come to my clinic in David to see if I can fit him. Then he needs to go to the hospital regional for physical therapy.I'll be in David Oct 22 ___March2013 When I'm in David call me @6 760 3439
What is strange is someone that would wait 4 months and not try to contact me another time.
If I had your E-mail I would have replied.If I wanted someone to contact me I would have left an E-mail address or tele #. very strange
Has anyone put the man who made a plea for assistance at the Tuesday Meeting in touch with Mr. McCormack. He needed a leg. I did not get his name but others did and I hope they will make the connection.
A friend in the States and I are working with Tom to obtain the support he needs in moving his medical products and supplies to David. His efforts and accomplishments would be a terrific subject for "60 Minutes," or similar program. Tom charges NOTHING for his prostheses, whether it be legs, hands, breasts and wigs or other materials, like wheelchairs, hearing aids, hospital beds,water purification systems, etc. This list is very long and growing. Tom's services to the people of Chiriqui Province and Panama are enormous. If anyone knows or has contact with container companies or shipping companies, please help out. Tom gets the needed items; but he needs help in getting them here. Of course, donations are also thankfully accepted...and tax deductible.
Don Ray of Chiriqui Chatter has been posting Tom's efforts to help Panama.
Tom's website is McCormack Foundation and the next container is due about October (next month).
I have been told this man has been collecting money for this leg for years. He appears less interested in the leg than the money. He has made no effort to get the leg.
I talked to him at Baru and he told me that he is aware of Tom but (and I don't believe him) $1500 is required. He also said a deposit is required before getting a leg with the rest due after getting the leg. I asked him why the $ and he had no answer. No, I did not misunderstand him at all. I asked him if this was from some sort of national health program or similar and he said it is from Tom.
Gee, I cannot wait to see him again ; )
Tom charges nothing.
