Little Rafaeli from Brazil is just 2 years old, but she is already famous online. And it's all due to a prescription that a doctor wrote for her after visiting the hospital.


Her mother, Veri Trindade, had taken her to the hospital because she was very sick and had a high fever. Veri was skeptical about the doctor's visit, because she'd had awful experiences with the health care system in Brazil in the past. But this time things were different, VERY different. She posted her experience on Facebook:



The prescription reads, "Rafaeli, get well soon! Kisses from Dr. Nice Guy."

Veri wrote, "I don't even know where to start. I was super worried about Rafaeli because she had a fever last night and it kept coming back. This evening she got bumps on her skin, so we decided to take her to the hospital. I was feeling skeptical about going for reasons I can't explain here. But today I was totally surprised! I am in tears! My heart is pleased ... and full of relief. I came home and told my husband, Xandi that I couldn't believe that such kind people existed in the public health system, but they do. This incredible doctor checked my daughter with immense patience! She didn't cry, she was just as surprised as I was. I have no words, our city has a true angel! Thank you Dr. Marcelo! Tonight our family will sleep in peace! After he wrote the prescription for medication and gave it to me, he wrote a special prescription for my daughter. One for mommy, one for Rafaeli!!! I will remember this for the rest of my life!"


This message went viral in Brazil and has already been shared thousands of times. The mom and doctor didn't expect this would go so far, but they are happy that a story about a kind act could reach so many people. "Our country is in need of good news," said Dr. Marcelo Lufiego. Indeed, Brazil is facing a very complicated political and economic crisis and all government institutions are suffering from it. So this story brought hope to many people and put a smile on many faces.

A small act of kindness can sometimes make all the difference. Cheers to those of us out there who do their job with love!
