Sid and Janey Fortney are generous, giving individuals. They ran a hospital in Haiti for 5 years and still go at least once a year to help out. Dr. Fortney volunteers each month at a free health clinic for needy families of all races.  They have led a community Bible study for over 10 years.  They have performed uncountable acts of kindness to all they come in contact with, often dispensing free medical care and advice to anyone who needs it.  They are true American heroes.
