A Hollywood screenwriter decides to move from Los Angeles back to his hometown, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and rediscovers himself. He documents "the city's recent resurgence," that caused it to be named the most livable U.S. city in 2007, but voices concern about population migration and the city's future. With the theme of Pittsburgh as the friendly neighborhood portrayed by Fred Rogers, Korlander shares reflective and humorous moments with his wife, brother, and a few of "Pittsburgh's favorite neighbors: Paul O'Neill, Teresa Heinz Kerry, Bill Strickland, Bob O'Connor, Sister Linda Yankonski, Louie Anderson, Franco Harris, Joanne Rogers, David Newell [Mr. McFeely], Dr. Thomas Starzl, Dr. Cyril Wecht. ... It's never too late to come back!"-- Container

Strength and compassion in kidney failure : writings of Mildred (Barry) Friedman, professional kidney patient by Mildred Barry Friedman ( )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Written from the perspective of the joy of celebrating life rather than lamenting the scourge of chronic illness, this collection of medical columns, short stories, and letters recounts the wonderful and upbeat tale of coping, surviving, and prevailing. Starting out as a medical technician, wife, and mother faced with progressive loss of sight and ambulation, Barry Friedman devised strategies for using her intellect to benefit other patients and medical professionals. Free from self pity and permeated by hope, enthusiasm, and the belief that there was much to be accomplished, Friedman proved to be a keen observer of the sense and nonsense comprising her therapeutic regimen for diabetes, Addison's disease, and renal failure. Especially helpful are Friedman's hints for dealing with the necessity of diet and time change during travel and activity while under treatment with insulin. Reading these short stories reveals a sense of humor and a glint of impish satisfaction in just being alive

Until the age of thirty-three, Starzl says, "I felt like a missile looking for a trajectory." His work with liver transplantation gave him a course for life and, despite initial setbacks and failures, he has pursued it relentlessly, eventually achieving stunning success. Throughout his career, first at the University of Colorado and then at the University of Pittsburgh, he has aroused both worldwide admiration and controversy. His technical innovations and medical genius have revolutionized the field, but Starzl has not hesitated to address the moral and ethical issues raised by transplantation. In this book he clearly states his position on many hotly debated issues including brain death, randomized trials for experimental drugs, the costs of transplant operations, and the system for selecting organ recipients from among scores of desperately ill patients
