Dr. Hooman, I am so sorry.

There are few extraordinary individuals who truly impact our lives in such a profoundly positive way and whose memory illuminates the world after they have passed from it. Amy Reed was such a person who embodied all that is righteous. Though we never met, she and her husband will forever be remembered by me for their courage and commitment to truth.

Although I never had the good fortune to meet Amy, I shall never forget her courage and unrelenting commitment to trying to ensure others did not have to endure her illness. She was an extraordinary spokeswoman even though she was gravely ill. Both Amy and Dr. Noorchashm are truly heroes who embody all that is good and honorable in this world. I am forever grateful to Amy for her efforts and to Dr. Noorchashm for his integrity as he persists in exposing some very unethical practices and individuals. Amy shall forever be remembered by me as a person whose character is worthy of emulation.

Dr. Amy Reed bravely broke the healthcare code of silence, and average families (like mine), read about her in papers and social media Facebook groups like Medical Error Transparency Plan, Patient Safety Action Network, & Mothers Against Medical Errors. She and Dr. Noorchashm taught us so much, and she was also a role model. We miss her and appreciate her family.

Hooman

I have struggled with knowing the best way to reach out to you and introduce myself and offer my help and condolences. I have thought of and prayed for you, for Amy and for your family since I first became aware of Amy's plight. I have composed letters to you in my head. It has never felt like the right time to send them.

However, this morning I sat in the pre op area of a local hospital and listened while the patient next to us was consented for surgery. My anxiety grew as I heard she had a uterine mass and was having a hysterectomy, then realized it was laparoscopic. The patient was a doctor herself so I assured myself that she knew what was happening. And I thought of you and Amy again and my anxiety grew more. Amy's funeral Mass booklet sat beside me in my purse because despite taking all but the essentials out of my purse last night, I couldn't bring myself to part with it. And then I heard the patient's (non-medical) husband ask "Can you tell us how you will take it out? Will it be taken out in one piece?" And the resident responded "Yes. I know you hear a lot about morcellation these days. We don't do that."

And I thought "THANK YOU, AMY AND HOOMAN. YOU DID THAT."

Across the country and the world, people are asking this question because of you. Not just physicans, not just physicians who are patients, not just patients, but non-medical husbands of patients. You did this.

It seemed to me that this was the best way to start our conversation. I'll still send you one of those letters in my head. I'll still offer my help and condolences in a proper fashion. But let this moment of awe and praise for Amy be the beginning.

Much love
Ann

Dr. Hooman Noorchashm, My sincerest condolences to you and your children. Please know that I consider both you and your wife Hero's. To fight the fight and still think of all the people that came after her is astounding to me. I have no idea how many lives both of you have saved by your stance and bucking the system in which you were both firmly entrenched is amazing. My heart aches for you and your children. Just know how many of us are thinking of all of you.

My deepest condolences. We have all lost loved ones; Amy's passing strikes deep for many, but mostly for the family. I cannot imagine what you are experiencing. Some have told me that time lessens the pain of a loved one lost. Don't believe it. It is an untrue. The pain will endure but that may not be a bad thing. I've never wanted the pain to leave me; it is the reminder of the missing. As memories fade, the pain of love lost keeps our loved ones vivid and present. Stay strong, look forward but don't let go of the past.

Hooman, Joseph, Nadia, Ava, Josh, Luke & Ryan - We are so sorry for the loss of your loving wife and mother.

My sincerest condolences to Hooman, and your entire family. My heart and prayers are with you. Back in Philadelphia, both of your faith and conviction were an inspiration to me. I worked with Amy in both the general ICU and CTSICU and learned so much from her, particularly about how to do what we do without fear and with compassion - how to take care of our patients and each other. God bless Amy and God bless your entire family.

I'm so grateful for Amy's fight against power morcellation. Her fight will be remembered in
All the people she has touched, saved,
Inspired and educated. I have uterine
Polyps and a fibroid and was recommended
Surgery with power morcellation to remove
The polyps. I'm still unsure of my path but
Amy and Dr. N's fight inspired me to
Ask more questions, see more doctors,
Do more research and be more careful. Amy
Was such a strong woman who did not
Go down without a fight! She did not go
Silently into the night. Thank you Amy and Dr. N
For making so many more women aware, setting
Changes in motion and saving many lives.
I will continue to share Amy's story with others
To make more women aware and save lives.
May Amy Rest In Peace!

I first became aware of Amy when she wrote an article in July, 2014, for the American Society of Anesthesiologists monthly magazine (http://monitor.pubs.asahq.org/article.aspx?articleid=2432263&resultClick=3), describing what had happened and the challenges she and her family faced. I was so moved, I sent her an email and she gave me the link to follow their campaign to end power morcellation, which I have shared with everyone I know. I have been following this ever since, and am so saddened for her husband and children that they have lost such a loving and courageous wife and mother. Amy and Hooman's tireless fight to stop this practice has saved countless lives, so how awful that hers was not one of them. I don't know how they did it in the midst of their own battle with cancer -- I can't imagine how hard that was. You all are in my thoughts and prayers, and I am sure Amy is watching over her family with the amazing love, strength and tenacity that she showed throughout her life. I am so deeply sorry for your loss, and grateful that you both made a difference in our lives -- my life -- not only by hopefully ending morcellation forever but inspiring me with your courageous effort to ensure this doesn't happen to anyone else. God bless you all. Amy, rest in peace.

We all struggle in vain to find the right words to ease your pain. We all fail miserably. It all sounds just so trite, doesn't it, like platitudes in a sympathy card? Just know that we care about you. You hurt and we hurt. We hurt because we choose to hurt. We choose to hurt because we care, as if somehow that knowledge will bring you a fraction of comfort. May your memories of Amy quickly bring smiles to replace tears. May your dreams be made of cotton. May you feel her presence around you at the most needed times for years to come.

"If I could speak and understand in all the languages of the people of the world or even of angels, but didn't have love, what good would that be? I would only be like a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I had the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that could literally move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give everything I possess to the poor-- and even give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do so without love, I gain nothing.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." - I Corinthians chapter 13

Amy and Hooman - that's a forever love that never fails. Nadia, Ava, Joseph, Joshua, Luke and Ryan - beautiful children from wonderful parents. We love all of you.

I learned of Amy's cancer diagnosis at the same time I learned of mine. Although our stories were very different, I felt that Amy's continuous fight for women's protection was a constant light in my life. She gave me the persistence, the drive and the courage to fight my illness and most importantly, to never complain, because there are so many more people so much worse off than me. I am so grateful for the Noorchasm family for being so strong at a very difficult time and for having the strength, through their darkness, to help other people. Her family, her children should be so proud of what this wonderful woman has done. She will always be a hero and a beautiful light that will shine on always through her children. I wish her peace and hope that she will be watching over all of us. Love to AMY!

She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the movies. She was beautiful for the way she thought. She was beautiful for that sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something or someone she loved. She was beautiful for her ability to make other people smile even when she was sad. No, she wasn't beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. --- anonymous

My thoughts and prayers go out to you Hooman and the whole family. So sorry for the loss of your brave, courageous and selfless wife who was taken from you much too soon. She was one in a million, devoting her precious time to help others. She bought victory out of a tragedy for the good of others.

Without having heard about Amy's story I'd never have made the connection as to why my mothers cancer reoccurred so soon and so aggressively (her uterus was manually morcellated). Unfortunately this information came too late and I lost my mother but I am determined here in the U.K to highlight this cause and not allow my mothers death and Amy's to be in vain. I am making some progress but will keep going until I get the right answers and see change.

You and your wife are inspirational and should be very proud of all your hard work. Your work is making an impact all over the world.

God Bless Hooman and family

Please accept my condolences. I have been following your family story for years. When I needed two polyps removed from my uterus, I made sure that morcellation was NOT performed. So, your education campaign helped me. I wish you could all still be together as a family. My thoughts are with you all.

Sending positive thoughts and prayers to you and your family. I am so grateful to have met Amy and to have heard her story. She really was a hero and a role model. There is no doubt she saved hundreds or even thousands of lives by sharing her story. But also I believe if Amy hadn't shared her story, Woman like myself would not have learned of the potential hidden dangers that my DR's use of the morcellator, subjected me too. Hooman, you and Amy were like an army of many advocates, educating and paving the way to give woman medical power to question. I am grateful for you both.

Words are inadequate to express my feelings. You have suffered an enormous loss.

No one accomplishes more than Amy did. Every day, lives are saved because of her good work. Every patient is safer. She changed history.

In Profiles in Courage, Kennedy endorses Hemingway's definition of courage: 'Grace under pressure.' You, Amy, and your entire family have displayed enormous grace under the worst pressure. Our hearts have broken as we have watched. Our souls have admired your grace. Your courage has left a mark on us. You have honored the community by sharing this part of your lives. In the future, let us know what we can do. We are in your debt. The world is in your debt. We appreciate you. We want to do all we can to support you and your family.

I told my new friends here in Georgia about Amy, and her battle. One friend halted a hysterectomy with a morcellator after our conversation. Amy's legacy goes beyond saving lives- she was so loving! She remained a caring mother, wife, friend by all accounts until the very end. I am inspired by her courage- and to always live each day to the fullest. I have faith that she is with God, and she will be praying for her loved ones until all of you meet again. I tear up every time I see a picture of her- it is still hard to believe. I am so sorry that you lost her so young, but wow, what a life!! What a beautiful life.

Since I learned of Amy's passing, I've been trying to come up with the right words to adequately convey how heavy my heart is for you, Hooman, and for your children. I know there really are no words that I can say that will ease the incredible pain you feel right now. So, I will continue to pray for you, your children and Amy's family. I pray that God wraps His mighty arms around all of you in the days and months to come and gives all of you the comfort, peace and strength you all need.
I hope you all know what an incredible honor and privilege it was to meet and know Amy and to learn from her. What she did for women's health will last for generations, for her daughters and their daughters and an immeasurable amount of women. What an incredible example she has set for all of us, and what an amazing legacy she leaves. She touched so many lives, and we are all changed for the better for knowing her. She will be greatly missed.

I am very so sorry for your loss. I wish to thank you for this fight against the morcellation procedure.

I am proud to have worked with both Amy and Hooman at Penn. It truly was a pleasure and I am amazed by the strength, determination, and the selflessness showed to save the lives of women across this country. Amy's life was honored by the selfless love and support of her husband, family, and friends. Thanks for SHOWING the world what GRACE, LOVE, and SELFLESSNESS looks like. #Pennfamilyalways

I am so sorry for your loss, and for your family's great loss and suffering. May you find peace and comfort in the love of your family and friends and strangers, like myself, who have heard of you through the work of you and Hooman's important work of informing the public about terrible gynecological practices. My heart grieves with you today.

My deepest condolences to Hooman Norchashm, and the entire Norchashm-Reed family. What a wonderful woman she was, and our world is that much dimmer without her light. She was brave, powerful, loving, and a voice for the voiceless.

I only met Amy once but she made a huge impact on my life, and that of many others. I so wish that she'd never been put into the position of becoming the advocate that she did, but she truly used her devastating situation to do everything possible to prevent it from happening to others. My thoughts and prayers are with Hooman, her children, and other family and loved ones. I hope you are able to take some comfort in knowing how much she was treasured.
