Leah Gray, Lincoln Park, MI

Lincoln Park, MI, Letter Carrier Leah Gray delivered mail to a woman who appeared to be ill. Gray encouraged the woman to seek medical care, but she declined. Days later, when Gray returned, the woman’s condition was worse. This time, she followed Gray’s advice and was taken to hospital, where she was placed in the intensive care unit. The woman’s daughter later said Gray’s persistence probably saved her mother’s life.
