Demystifying Medicine One Month at a Time

GlassHospital Goes BigTime

The Noo Yawk Times!


Big happenin’ in Second City! Read all about it!  

You may remember a couple of previous posts [here and here], in which I asked readers for help in solving a medical mystery.  

Well, the story got picked up over at KevinMD, “Social Media’s Leading Physician Voice,” and from there, to today’s “Diagnosis” column in the New York Times’ Sunday Magazine, by Dr. Lisa Sanders.  

I heartily encourage you to read the story.  

Then, tell 100 of your friends, and have a party in which you spend a good deal of time surfing this blog.  

The really good news in all of this, of course, is that my friend, who needed our collective help, is fully healed, back at work, and symptom-free.  

Evil liver hemangioma be gone!  

If this story inspires you, feel free to send along your own ‘fascinoma’ story or the story of someone you know. Though at GlassHospital we can’t dispense medical advice, we can educate our readers on topics that may be of general interest in the health and medical spheres.  

Thank you for your continued readership and support!

    When you are a writer, there is almost nothing more exciting than hitting the New York Times. I had a letter published in the New York Times Magazine two years ago (ok, it was Sunday, April 6, 2008, lol) and I practically had an….well I was pretty excited.

    Well done!

    Great to hear, John, that your work both helped your friend get better but also ended up as an interesting column in the Great Grey Lady.
