Larry King Brings Hope To Lubbock Heart Patients

20 years ago this month Larry King had quintuple bypass heart surgery. The doctor who performed the procedure is Dr. Wayne Isom, from Idalou. And because of Larry King and Dr. Isom, Lubbock's Covenant Medical Center is receiving funding from The Larry King Cardiac Foundation to help the less fortunate and children get the heart care many could never afford.

"Our goal is to help people who can't afford it," said King.

King came to Lubbock Saturday, not for a ground breaking interview, but for something more important, to save lives.

"Those who are in need, those who are not covered by insurance, families that are down on their luck in many cases we can often provide heart procedures and surgeries."

"The hospitals are doing this at cost. The surgeons and cardiologists are donating their time for these cases," said Dr. Wayne Isom.

"This is an ideal interlocking... It's almost a movie. In fact it would be a movie," added King.
