Dr. Jerri Nielsen Fitzgerald, who had diagnosed, operated on, and treated her own breast cancer while at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station in Antarctica, died on June 23rd at the age of 57. Her cancer had returned in 2005.

The Globe and Mail quoted her husband as saying:“She fought bravely, she was able to make the best of what life and circumstance gave her, and she had the most resilience I have ever seen in anyone. She fought hard and she fought valiantly.”

I wish to offer my condolences to this brave woman’s family.
