Kimo's World #74
Dr.  Sims goes viral

I am 99.9% assured that never before  in the history of Kauai's Garden Island Newspaper online edition have there been as many recommends and shares for one story. The recommends are so high the counter is now calculating them in terms of 'k' (thousands) as of this writing the counter is climbing upwards of 3.9-k.  (3,900 recommends and counting.)
Check current recommends and TGI article "I've had a fantastic life" by clicking on link below;

Reminder, this is not how many people read the story but rather how many took the time  to hit the recommend button on their computer device.Also note, each computer device is cookied in allowing nobody to  hit recommend  more than one time and have it count.

The article I speak of is titled, "I've had a good life"  about beloved local icon, veterinarian, Dr. Scott Sims.
Shared from Facebook

  
Dr. Scott, AKA the barefoot vet,was recently diagnosed with a fatal cancer and just five days prior heard the great news that his Nat Geo Wild reality TV show, "The Aloha vet" was renewed for a second season where Scott wishes  to advocate for quality over quantity of life along with the shows regular format.

The  write-up by TGI staff writer Brittany Lyte was so well written along with great subject matter, it is no surprise it went viral on the Internet.

With all that kind of love from all over the world acknowledging this man of honor and integrity, I just can't imagine some kind of miracle for one of Kauai's most admired and treasured residents.

"Mahalo for sharing this with us Kimo. We shared the article on our facebook page and it reached 5,000 people with more than 400 clicking on the story link.

We were on the show with our dog, Milo the Hawaiian Surfing Pomeranian. Like others, our hearts broke when we heard the news.

We send Scott healing energy and hope he will receive the same great treatment he's given countless others.

Hope you're well...

Aloha, Heather and Keoni

Unreal, the outpouring of love for such a great guy.

Yes, I saw the surfing dog on TV, too cool! 😉 I pray every morning, and always say a healing prayer for Dr. Scott too!

Aloha,

Please let Dr. Scott know he is in the prayers of many of us. We put him on the Prayer Wheel and pray for a
full recovery.

He is the "jewel" of Kauai! If love, admiration & prayer can truly "heal" the physical body, Dr. Scott will be well in no time
