A Dame We Knew by Beryl Harris

A story about the life and times of Dame Cecily Pickerill, a pioneering New Zealand plastic surgeon who operated on many hundreds of infants with cleft problems.

Along with her husband she believed in the early repair for a thriving baby. She did not use a series of nurses for this but the babies’ own mothers, whose immunity they passed to their infants and whose love covered 24 hour care, seven days a week, no problems, no ‘H Bug’.

The many stories are written by many people who knew her and appreciated her care.

The book honours Dame Cecily, her family and her husband who she gives full credit to for training her. She has had little public recognition until this time just over 26 years since she died in her own hospital, Bassam in Lower Hutt.
