The Art of Palliative Medicine - 2016 Semester 1

The Heavy Door

Our patient’s last wish was that she can see next summer. The creative work represents our patient trying to open the door to the next summer. Or patient is shown as a ‘stickman’. This illustrates the damages of breast cancer and previous surgeries, chemotherapies and radiotherapies on her body. The key is not shown because it is at the bottom of everyone’s heart and it varies from person to person.. For our patient and a lot of many other patients their wish to open the door for next summer is simply fortune.

Our academic building is temporarily closed for seismic reasons but our top class teaching, studying and research programmes remain in full swing.
