On the death of Professor John Goldman. Emeritus Professor of Haematology, Imperial College.
Many CML patients will be very upset to hear of John’s death and might like to express their appreciation of him. Professor Jane Apperley would like to put together a book of condolences that will be lead from the Hammersmith in London.
Please read her message below.
‘It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that John Goldman died on Dec 24th only one week after he was diagnosed with metastatic cholangiocarcinoma (cancer of the bile duct). His contribution to haematology was enormous and he will be much missed by the national and international haematology community, but very especially here at Imperial where he worked for more than 40 years
There will be time in the future to celebrate John’s life and achievements, but for now our thoughts are with his family. You may know that none of his family are in the medical profession and may not appreciate the depth of respect and admiration that we all hold for John. It seems that a book of condolences might be the way to proceed.
Professor Jane Apperley, Imperial College, Hammersmith Hospital, London.
Please send your message of condolence to Sandy at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will collate them all and send them on to Professor Apperley for inclusion in the book of condolences which will then be given to his family.
Please include your name and any other information that you feel may be relevant such as any of the following:
whether you are a patient/caregiver, a member of this or any other group, have been treated at any time by Prof. Goldman, have met him, are aware of the work he has done on behalf of CML patients everywhere.
