Joey's Story

My parents emigrated from the Philippines in the early 1960s. Although they were fresh out of medical school, they came to the States without any money or guarantee they could even practice here. But, for them, the risk was worth it so they could provide a better life than they had, for their future children. They both became successful doctors, wonderful parents to four children and pillars of their community in suburban Cleveland. They were the epitome of the American Dream.
