Yuma Daily Sun, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1968, Yuma, Arizona Editor's Notebook A Triumph Very Close To Greatness By JONES OSBORN Heart transplants arc still so rare that they command our attention as well as our admira- tion. Rut the heart transplant that Yumiins hplped make possible last weekend was r a r e r still. For in that real-life drama, t w o lives sprann from one. Tin first was the a g e o 1 d m i r a c 1 e of childbirth The second was the mod- e r n mirae.lo of a hearl transplant. THE YUMA 7 20 Pages Per Copy lOc Yuma, Arizona, Thursday, November 21, 1968 Phone 783-3333 ARIZONA 2 17 We ran lie nro-.id of the Yu- ma-arr-a people who played a part in the Ihreo-day struggle against long ndds. But first, T think, we owe our respect lo Ihe family of Mrs. Maria Acnsln, of San Luis. Me.xiro. It would have completely understandable and they would havr licen en- tirely wilhin their prerogative had Ihey denied permission for Ihe transplant, and the ef- fort would have ended there, quietly and properly. Bui Ihey recognized the opportunity to try to save a life and for this noble act, may these humble people be forever blessed. At rm time were they offered money or other inducement, and none has been received. Secondly, let us salule Ihe in- itiative of Dr. Harold Gordon, who first saw ihe opportunity to save another life, ft was his initiative that started wheels turning, lhat sec.urert the help of nurses and hospital person- nel, that called for a special flight through the Marine Corps Air Station, and that got the dying mother to Houston in lime. For three days and nights of skilled and strenuous effort, the doctor neither asked for, nor received, any fee. The only financial help offered were overnight accommodations in Houston and an airplane ticket back lo Yuma for him and ilurfwrcl Bullock, registered nurse.
