A British-born Amazonian cowboy's lifelong quest to bring free health services to America has had his story told as part of a feature-length documentary.

Stan Brock, originally from Preston, founded the Remote Area Medical charity in 1985, and has since provided more than £35 million of free healthcare to around 300,000 people in the US, including vital dental care, examinations and treatment.

His inspiring and challenging story about an unlikely man on an unwavering and improbable mission to confront one of the biggest social issues in America - an issue of which, thanks to the NHS, we might take for granted here in the UK.

You can watch the documentary Medicine Man: The Stan Brock Story from the Indiegogo website.

The British filmmakers are also seeking donations to be able to continue telling his story. Fundraising has 6 days to go, closing on May 11, so please help them by making a contribution. Thank you.

It is people like you that gives hope to those less fortunate. I have a friend in great need of dentures has about 15 teeth left fighting infection. He is a good man, I pray you can help him or can tell me where to go. Can't find work and maybe becoming homeless. He prays so hard please help. ThNk you in advance. God Bless you whether or not you can help my friend.
