Hawthorne Mural Draws Attention to Medical Help
What started off as one man's final vision... now serves as a reminder of him and his mission to help others.
DeWayne Yates was the CEO of the Family Medical Center in Hawthorne. In February, at age 37, he died of Leukemia.
But before he passed away, he described a vision he had to an artist... about a mural that he wanted painted on the side of the medical center.
Yates was in charge of many health facilities in small towns across North Central Florida dedicated to helping lower income families.
The mural will be dedicated in august-- perhaps on his birthday, on the 16th.
Yates leaves behind a wife and four young children.
