Hi, my name is
Barbara. I was born and raised in PA but now live in Oregon. My mother Dolores (Dee)
Lillian Edelman was a patient at Cresson in the mid 50's till approx. 1958. I know she was there
for quite some time.
My mom was fortunate
to have only one lobe of her lung surgically removed and then was released from Cresson. I would love to hear
from anyone who might have known her, as she never spoke much about it. Any information on people, photos , websites
will be greatly appreciated!
TB was so rampant. I lost an aunt and an uncle and
2 grandfathers to it. You were very young to be there as well.
Here are some pics of my mom and several of my dad with her at Cresson in 1958 it says on the back.
My dad was Jack Edelman who just passed this last April.
