Kids will be screened for free treatment through Shriners Hospitals at a clinic this weekend in Klamath Falls.
89 year old Shriner Ward Friedman has been helping kids get treatment for more than three decades...
"Well, I've been doing it for over 30 years, and I have probably interviewed, and got 150 kids into the hospital."
The Shriners will be hosting a screening this Saturday in Klamath Falls to help out even more kids...
"We have doctors that will examine children for orthopedic defects, burns, cleft palates."  Noted Friedman.  "Anything that we can help."
The screening clinic will be held at Cascades East Clinic, next to Sky Lakes Medical Center.
Friedman stressed that all services are offered free of charge...
"There's no strings attached whatsoever."
Friedman says he's stayed involved simply for the satisfaction of helping a child.  And Friedman is modest about what help he's been able to provide:  "I'm just a Shriner."
But that means a lot to a kid that needs help.
The Shriners Hospital free screening clinic will take place this Saturday from 10:am to 2:pm at Cascades East.
