I am MD Anderson_Thomas Holcomb
Thomas Holcomb has occasion to cross paths with patients receiving treatment at MD Anderson. And one patient will never forget the lengths to which he went to help her recover her diamond wedding band, which slipped down a toilet. The ring travelled more than 30 feet into the plumbing system, but Thomas didn't give up the search, even after hours of reconnaissance. He was as happy to see the expression on the woman's face as he was to locate and recover her ring. "I'm given a little leeway here to go the extra step and help patients," he says. "She was very happy and it made me feel pretty good, too."
