Dr. Laura Schrörs
Paediatrician (Specialist in child and adolescence medicine)
‘ Think about your script for our home page’ my boss called out as I was just about to head off into the upcoming weekend.
I was sitting on the train on my way home, jotting down notes, sorting out my thoughts, thinking about what inspired me to become a paediatrician,
when I suddenly noticed a small boy ,who was travelling with his Mother, sitting across from me.
He suddenly said ‘Mum,do you know what the worst thing about going to the Doctor is?’
‘ No ‘ answered his Mother.
Then the little boy said ‘it’s the needle prick’.
The Mother hugged her son.
He looked out the window and said ‘Mum, do you know what the worst thing in the whole wide world is ?’
His Mother snuggled up to her son, looked at him and answered ‘no , what is it?’
The little boy answered: ‘to be sick. To be sick is the worst thing in the world.’
That I thought, is exactly right. That’s it!
For many years I’ve worked with cancer-stricken children. Both in Germany and abroad.
I would now like to continue my training in general paediatrics .
There is nothing more valuable in life than a healthy child.
I want tio help healthy children stay healthy and simultaneously help and treat ill children ,so that they also can be as happy and as carefree as healthy children.
