The Death Penalty

January 22, 2015

Words cannot express how I feel about the killing of a cardiac surgeon in Boston yesterday.  His wife is my friend.  His colleagues are mine.  And  the fragile and fractured trust between doctor and patient ruptures further.  My heart goes out to his family.

  1. Dear Shirie,
    The world has lost another hero.
    It reminds me of the senseless murder of Dr Victor Chang, Sydney, Australia:

  2. Sorry, I meant to add links regarding Dr Victor Chang, Cardiac Surgeon, who was senselessly murdered in 1991.

    At least something good came out of this, via the Victor Chang Research Institute:

    • Thanks Sabina – I know there is a foundation being established in his name, but I believe the funds are for his children, who are 10,8,2, and not yet born.

  3. One last link to Dr Victor Chang, Cardiac Surgeon (murdered, but not forgotten)

    I am sorry for your loss.

    I am inspired by the success of The Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, in his memory.

    Is there room for a similar institute, to honour and celebrate your own colleague?
