The profession of a doctor is one of the most difficult and important in the world. People who choose it consciously and with a full desire to delve into all its subtleties are special.
One of them is Ivan Fontura, a children’s pediatrician from Brazil. He has worked all his life with children in need and now, as a 92-year-old man, continues to work.
Throughout his adult life, Ivan helped and saved the lives of all the children who came to see him.
Being an experienced and educated doctor, he managed to put even the most hopelessly ill patients on their feet, not only by conducting standard treatment, but also inspiring, literally charging them with life.
The doctor officially retired back in 2005, but he did not stop working.
Now, Ivan Fontura is already 92 years old, and he does not even think about watching football at home. Every day, the man goes to the clinic to receive and treat children again and again.
Ivan himself repeatedly talked about how, after graduating from university in 1951, he entered a practice at a local hospital.
There, among the many workers, he singled out one surgeon.
He did not just treat his patient – he actually put him on his feet, breathed life into him.
Such care touched the beginner specialist to the very heart, and he realized that if he worked as a doctor, then only in this way.
Since then, work in Ivan’s life has been the most important thing to which he gives his whole heart and soul.
By the way, Ivan’s wife, Eva, works with him as a nurse and adheres to her husband’s policy.
Old age and retirement – all this does not frighten Ivan Fontura at all.
As he himself says, in his young years he managed to earn enough money, and now he does not need it.
He freed himself a good part of life and made it free from the race for money in order to be able to help all the needy children.
For his services, the doctor does not take a penny from families. Often even homeless children from dysfunctional families get to him, but they all require medical help.
Ivan considers it his duty to put every little patient on his feet and restore his health.
The legendary pediatrician became the pride of Brazil. People come to him from all over the country to cure their children, and then to thank him.
