Great Figures in Transplant / Non-Transplant History > Janine Murphy
Posted Oct 13 2009 10:04pm
This month's nomination for Great Figures in Transplant / Non-Transplant History goes to a lady who demonstrated that you can still rise to great works in your chosen field - sometimes even with chronic illness.
Janine Murphy was the late Chief Executive Officer of the Royal Australian Mint. It appears from her obituary notices that she had had a long-term illness, no doubt leading to her liver transplant.
People sometimes assume that you can't be a contributing member of society - in a salaried or non-salaried way - if you have a chronic illness. But there are plenty of people who demonstrate the opposite.
