Doc Rockwell and Claire Rockwell
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. Father of George Lincoln
Rockwell, founder of American Nazi Party. This was a great embarrassment to Doc
whose friends included Fanny Brice, Groucho Marx, George Burns and Jack Benny.
Doc outlived his assassinated son by nearly eleven years. imdb.com

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.
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.
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?
