Dr Terry Gillespie, a giant in the field of

Cystic Fibrosis has died in New Brunswick, Canada.   Dr. Terry Gillespie, who was in his 90th year when he died last week in a Sackville, N.B., hospital, occasionally remarked that he learned more about medicine from being sick than he did from medical school.

For more than a quarter century, Dr. Gillespie headed the cystic fibrosis clinic at the IWK. When he took the job, those with CF rarely lived into their teens. When he retired in 1992, the life expectancy of Maritimers with CF was several times greater and among the world’s best.

It’s hard to definitively define the “Gillespie genius,” but certain things are clear. He recognized sooner than most that CF needs to be treated every day. For example, he recognized the importance of good nutrition — a high-fat diet — long before the rest of the world.

Secondly, he was absolutely dedicated to his patients.He was on call 24 hours a day. He would fight with governments, administrators and even other health professionals to ensure his patients received the best possible care.

Thirdly, because he contracted tuberculosis before he entered medical school and spent months isolated in a sanitarium, he knew how it felt to be sick and alone. That wasn’t going to happen to his patients, which is why he was often seen reading stories to a sick child late into the night.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, notwithstanding magnificent technological advances and the emergence of multiple medical sub-sub-specialties, Dr. Gillespie knew he was treating people, and their families, not just a disease.

In 2008, Dr. Gillespie was named to the Order of Canada.And, just weeks ago, a study reported that the average Canadian with CF lives 50.9 years, 10 years longer than the average American with CF. The study speculated on the reasons for this extraordinary gap. But it’s clear that universal CF care in Canada has contributed enormously to Canada’s remarkable survival statistics. And among those who treated those with CF in Canada, Dr. Gillespie was a giant. His life, and death, will be formally acknowledged at a funeral in Sackville, N.B. on Friday.
