The White Room


I’m re-blogging this story, written by Victo Dolore, in honor of Ruthie, my former co-worker who died from ovarian cancer. Ruthie was full of compassion for every human being. She worked especially hard to fight the stigma against pregnant women addicted to drugs. She worked to teach compassion to medical professionals in delivery and the NICU. She would love this story so much. To learn more about Ruthie and her continuing mission, you can visit:

  1. I read it on Victo’s blog but it was a good idea to reblog it for the reason you gave. It is a very forceful story.

  2. Victo was one of my students at one and we reconnected via WP. I enjoy the things she posts and I’m glad you shared this one. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤

  3. Such a well-written and powerful story. I loved it. Partly I loved the way death snuck up and the moment was on the one hand so mundane, even as it was so big. I would imagine being a doctor changes your notion of this transition we call dying. Makes it everyday. You realize that… it is a moment tempered by grace, and… we live through it… 🙂
