Richard Dunne: Us oncologists continue to think about you and your family too

Mark Lewis shared a post by Richard Dunne, Associate Professor of Medicine in the Department of Hematology/Oncology at the University of Rochester Medical Center, on X/Twitter:

“ALL OF THIS
As René Leriche said of surgeons, oncologists carry in their heart a cemetery where they go from time to time to pray
But where Leriche described a graveyard of bitterness and regret I try to make mine a place of remembrance & gratitude for lives entrusted to me”

Quoting Richard Dunne’s post:

“Received a note from a patients’ spouse more than a year after their passing. For those out there wondering—us oncologists continue to think about you and your family too. Thank you for your trust. It is an honor and a privilege”
