廖楚如老师冰冷的身躯,却蕴藏着满溢的温暖。公益慈善事业是她一生为之奋斗的事业。一个人的力量是微薄的,但那颗慈善之心是博大无边的。即使生命逝去,但这精神却长存于世。廖老师,感谢与您的相遇。 

让凝固的悲伤融化,让流动的悲伤转化,化为思念和爱 -《善生》冯以量 

在这活动结束之际,廖老师的家属向我们表示说他们并不后悔同意廖老师参与无语良师计划,还很欣慰她能以这样一个特别的方式贡献给医学界。这句话无疑深深地触动了我的心。原来这项计划,不只是逝世者把爱延续下去的途径,更能让丧亲者的家属从而得到救赎。从前,死亡这个话题是忌讳的、是沉重的。而这项计划就像是他们之间最后的饯别。在这整个过程里,他们允许自己的情绪流露,不再隐藏悲伤。只有当我们正视亲人逝世所带来的伤痛,我们才能真真与他们告别。

I didn’t know I could feel something so strongly for someone whom I've never met. And with Silent Mentor Program, I did. Knowing my mentor and her family is definitely one of the most precious memory throughout my medical school life. It is not easy having to lose your family, move on, and six months later travelling across the country for her funeral again. But these amazing souls did that, for us, expecting nothing in return. And I will be eternally grateful for that. 

And without the organizing team and volunteers, who would arrive earlier than us, go back later than us, spending their time accommodating participants and families, this whole event wouldn’t been a success. Thank you for this precious, heart-warming opportunity.

一致认为医生是一份能服务社会的职业,可我从您的身上学到了一个道理:只要有心,无论什么身份背景,都能服务社会,就如您无私地献上这么宝贵的身躯,受益了无数个医学生及医生们。谢谢您,不只让我学会了一些医术上的技术,更重要的是,你让我领悟到了这么一份,无私的爱。我也衷心感谢您的家人们一路以来所有的支持、配合、谅解及宽容,让这整个无语良师计划可以进行的那么成功。最后,我祝您一路走好,我最敬重的无语良师们。

Dear Silent Mentors, thank you for selflessly and courageously donating your bodies for medical educations and research. 

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to learn from you and perform procedures on you. Honestly, no words can fully encompass my gratitude for you. 

You have not spoken a single word, yet you have been my greatest teacher. Aside from medical knowledge and procedures, you have taught me and shown me that there is no limit to one’s kindness and selflessness. 

You have lived a glorious life, often engaging in charitable activities, yet death does not stop you. Even after your demise, you continue to keep giving. 

These words will never truly encompass my gratitude towards you, but I just want to say: thank you very much from the depths of my heart. 

I know I can never repay your kindness, nor do you expect anything in return. Instead, I can only pay the kindness forward to my future patients; and I promise, I will.

In life, the body is something we use to accomplish many things, but we ultimately do not possess it, as it is not permanant. Birth, aging, illness and eventually death - this is the natural course of life and there is only so much that medicine can do when life has reached its end. 

But, what should we do with our body after our death? If we understand that the body is not permanent, we can do something meaningful out of our lives, such as donating it for medical research and education as Silent Mentor.

~  Grateful to the dedication of silent mentors  ~

 

人對於自己的軀體,只有使用權,沒有所有權。人生無常,生、老、病、死不可避免,面對大自然法則,醫療總有極限。

生命無法預知長短,然而自我能夠拓寬生命的價值,讓生命更有深度;身體健康時,以信、願、行付出;當生命結束時,將身體奉獻給醫學教育。大體捐贈的行動,人人都能做得到,只在於『捨』的一念愛心。

~ 感恩無語良師的奉獻 ~
