A gangster is on the way to Blair General hospital, but Doctors Gillespie and Kildare aren’t in trouble. Actually Rico Marciano turns out to be a top violinist and his violin case is full of a violin, and not a machine gun. His wife needs medical attention for her cancer, and it’s a bad case. Why did they wait so long before coming in for treatment? The doctors discuss a few myths surrounding cancer and medical attention, mostly an attitude of the day that it’s necessary to pay first for medical treatment.
The cancer is too far advanced to hope for a total recovery, and the good doctors do all they can to ease the pain of their patient. Listen to hear the heartwarming bedside manner as Kildare learns the story of the couple in love. Rico and his wife are such good people, it’s a shame there’s nothing that can be done. But wait… an idea from an unlikely source comes from the unpopular Dr Carew. It’s the one thing to bring comfort for the ailing woman and her worried husband. It may not save her, but it helps add a little extra comfort.
