Doc Rockwell and Claire Rockwell 1916
George Lovejoy Rockwell and his wife Claire Schade were vaudeville performers. Born to a staid family (New England father, Canadian mother), Rockwell surpised his family by entering show business. He was primarily a vaudeville comic and was most famous for a comedy routine in which he portrayed a doctor with a stethoscope holding a five-foot banana stalk. He was billed as "Doc Rockwell - Quack, Quack, Quack!" His out-going, fast-talking style was ideal for telling jokes and performing magic. He married Claire Schade, the daughter in an act called The Four Schades, in Bloomington, Illinois, in 1915. After two sons and a daughter were born, the marriage ended in divorce. Doc's retreat was in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, USA, although he really lived on the road most of his life. At the height of his career in the early 1930s he commanded a salary of $3,500 a week in New York where he appeared at the Radio City Music Hall and the Ziegfeld Theater.

My Own Medicine: A Doctor's Life as a Patient
Approaching his forty-first birthday, Dr. Geoffrey Kurland was a busy man. His work as a Pediatric Pulmonologist, caring for children with lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis and asthma, led to long hours on the wards at the University of California, Davis Medical Center. At the same time, he was in the midst of training for the Western States Endurance Run, a grueling 100-mile long footrace across the wilderness of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. His long training runs, the responsibilities of patient care and teaching, and relationships attempting to replace his departed girlfriend occupied most of his life.

Dr. Kurland’s ordered world is suddenly turned upside-down when he is diagnosed with Hairy Cell Leukemia, a rare blood cancer with a low survival rate. His work, his running, and his friendships are altered by his struggle to survive. He finds he must undergo many of the procedures he performed on his patients, must endure surgery and chemotherapy, and must relinquish control of his life to his physicians, surgeons, and his disease. He learns first-hand what cannot be taught in medical school about the consuming power of a chronic illness and its treatment.

Confronting his own mortality, Dr. Kurland is now the patient while remaining a physician and runner. With the support of his physicians at the Mayo Clinic, the University of California, and the University of Pittsburgh, he resolves to continue to live his life despite his potentially fatal disease. He discovers his personal inner strengths as well as weaknesses as he struggles to confront his illness and regain some of the control he lost to it.

Along his nearly two and a half year journey, we follow Dr. Kurland as he endures surgical procedures, chemotherapy, and life-threatening complications of his illness. He emerges into remission with new inner strength and understanding of what it means to be a doctor. He also finds that he is still a runner, with the same goal, to run the 100 miles across the Sierra Mountains.


"[MY OWN MEDICINE] should be required reading for every medical professional. Kurland never asks for sympathy or pity. [...] What comes through powerfully is his humanity, which his own bout with illnesses has clearly enhanced, and from which both his patients and his readers will benefit." --The New York Times

"While training as a pediatric pulmonologist, Kurland told a patient, 'I know how you feel'; years later, when he was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia, he discovered just how untrue this was. A selfreliant type addicted to running ultramarathons, he was unprepared for the feeling of powerlessness that beset him. Taking a bone-marrow sample, for instance, is unpleasant enough, but his terror of being on the receiving end makes him plead for extra painkillers. The way in which serious illness alters one's sense of self and of life is compellingly expressed in this energetic, nervy narrative, as Kurland's illness and eventual recovery collide with a host of profound shifts—a big career move, the death of a colleague, an unravelling relationship with his girlfriend, and a deepening one with his parents." --The New Yorker

"MY OWN MEDICINE is rich in detail, enhanced by the author's skillful handling of the narrative...The book depicts a man who, faced with the painful reality of his own mortality, acknowledges his condition and gears himself to face the challenge." --Pittsburgh Post-Gazette?
