Charles Krauthammer (March 13, 1950 – June 21, 2018)

Charles Krauthammer, a longtime Fox News contributor, Pulitzer
Prize winner, Harvard-trained psychiatrist and best-selling author
who came to be known as the dean of conservative commentators,
died today.

In August 2017, Krauthammer had a cancerous tumor removed from
his abdomen. The surgery was thought to have been successful;
however, on June 8, 2018, Krauthammer announced that his cancer
had returned and that doctors had given him only weeks to live.
 


While in his first year studying at Harvard Medical School, Charles
Krauthammer became permanently paralyzed from the neck down
after a diving board accident that severed his spinal cord. After 
spending 14 months recovering in a hospital, he returned to the
medical school, graduating as a psychiatrist.
