From Our Editors

Kate Scannell has been practicing medicine for nearly 20 years. Throughout her career, she has never shied away from difficult circumstances, and proof of that lies in the compassionate way she treated AIDS patients for several years. But acting as clinical director for Oakland, California`s AIDS programs would only be a testing ground for an even harsher reality - that Kate would have to deal with a diagnosis of ovarian cancer. In Death of a Good Doctor, the physician recounts her experiences nurturing and sadly losing many patients to the mysterious immune disorder and her personal struggle living with another of the world`s deadliest diseases.
