‘Cruel Irony’ – Young Cancer Doctor Has Died Of Same Super-Rare Cancer He Dedicated His Life To Curing

June 23, 2017 | by | 0 Comments
Ed Showler. A talented and dedicated young doctor from Canterbury has died from the same rare cancer which many of his own patients suffered from.  See NATIONAL story NNDOCTOR.  Former Langton Boys’ pupil Ed Showler, who was 28 and training to be a consultant haematologist, was diagnosed with incurable clear cell sarcoma last September.  He died on Sunday, June 11, having been admitted to Kent and Canterbury Hospital in his final days.  His father John, who lives in Nackington and is the director of Rogate Homes, said it was a “cruel irony” that his son developed the same form of the disease as those he sought to help.  A star pupil at the grammar school, Ed was inspired to pursue medicine by his older brother Laurie, who is now an emergency doctor in Australia.  Ed studied at Cambridge for six years and qualified with a distinction before working at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading and then University College Hospital in London.
