"A Doctor's Journey" tells the story of the journey towards the realization of a young Hungarian boy's dream to be a doctor. Despite overwhelming adversity along the way, Laszlo Makk never stopped dreaming and hoping; he never gave up his trust in God. As a young man, Laszlo was blessed to survive World War II and the Hungarian Uprising of 1956; he eventually escaped to America, where he has found happiness as a proud U.S. citizen with the help of dear friends and a wonderful loving family.

He earned his medical degree from Albany Medical College in New York and trained in Houston. Ultimately, Dr. Makk landed in Louisville, Kentucky, where he worked as a greatly respected pathologist for over forty years. With strong determination and hard work, he overcame many obstacles and became a renowned doctor who contributed to the world's knowledge of cancer.

In addition to surviving hepatitis, a liver transplant, and open heart surgery himself; he saw his wife through a fourteen-year battle with breast cancer-relying on his personal medical knowledge to identify the best in cancer care. Four sons and nine grandchildren carry on the Makk legacy of hard work and a determined pursuit of happiness.
