William H. Khoe
by Nathaniel Khoe
There are countless stories of how my uncle treated me from simple disease as the common cold to mumps and even whiplashes.
He was so trusting to me, that at the age of 9, I would not be afraid of having 20 plus needles on my hand, ear, foot or back to cure whatever problem I had at the time.
As I finished college, I ran into several people that ask about my last name and wanted to know the relationship to Dr William Khoe. I told him, he was my uncle and then the unusual stories would come out. "He made me walk again." " I can see now!"
My Uncle Bill, was definitely a great American Acupuncturist. During his funeral service in Forest Lawn, the rest of family found out that he was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for Medicine. The story told was he missed winning that honorable title by one vote.
I am trying to find out more information on him, but I seem to be running into road blocks.
Any ideas to further my quest?
