The Man Who Helped Save the World, One Blanche at a Time

Dr. Thomas Starzl, the doctor who performed the first liver transplant and made great advancements in the treatment of organ rejection, died this weekend at the age of 90. I admit I had never heard of him before, but now that I have, I offer him a salute of thanks. His family stated that even with his monumental achievements in medicine, he should best be remembered as a teacher and a friend.

So thank you, my friend I never met, for saving my other friend, BlancheNoE. Good journey, Doctor.

I saw this early this morning. I had a quiet moment of giving thanks and remembrance. Thanks for thanking him NJ and thanks for calling me your friend. He's just one more exceptional human that had a major role in saving my life.
