Not too long ago, I wrote about my sister Linda, who passed away this summer.
Nobody could love a daughter more than my father Michael loved Linda.
My father (who is a doctor) was realistic from the start about what modern medicine might be able to do to save his precious daughter from cancer. Even with those low expectations, he was shocked at how impotent -- and actually counterproductive -- her interactions with the medical system turned out to be.
Here, in his own words, is my father's poignant account of my sister’s experience with medical care.
