Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. – 3 John 1:2

In the cancer ward of St. Joseph Mercy Hospital outside of Detroit, Dan Dewey sat by his father’s chemotherapy bed, and he wanted a cup of coffee. As he rose, he announced: “Anyone want a cup of coffee? I’m buying.” That was seven years ago. Dan’s father has long since beaten his own cancer, but Dewey keeps doing what he calls “the best job he ever had”: a trip to Starbucks to buy a few dozen coffee for doctors, nurses and cancer patients in area hospitals. Says oncologist Rajan Krishna? “It’s not so much the coffee as it is a vehicle for the relationship.”
