We have had the great honor & privilege to have Dr. Lorraine Day serving on our Board of Directors for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness (www.DrugAwareness.org) for about two & a half decades now. So it is with great sadness & loss we announce the passing of my dear friend & colleague Dr. Lorraine Day. Her funeral will be at Forrest Lawn this morning 12/10/2023 at 11:00 AM Pacific Time in Cathedral City, California.
For those wanting to attend the online viewing of the funeral or send your condolences to her family go to the following link to tune in & learn of her great achievements in life if you are not aware of them.
Dr. Day was internationally acclaimed orthopedic trauma surgeon and best selling author, who was for 15 years on the faculty of the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine as an Associate Professor & Vice Chairman of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery. She was also Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at San Francisco General Hospital & recognized world-wide as an AIDS expert.
She has been invited to lecture extensively throughout the US & the world & has appeared on numerous radio & television shows including 60 Minutes, Nightline, CNN, Crossfire, Oprah Winfrey, Larry King Live, The 700 Club, USA Radio Network, Art Bell Show, Three Angrls Broadcasting Network, & has been interviewed on numerous podcasts h alternative media programs.
First & foremost of her achievements would be her battle for truth as a leading surgeon about more of Fauchi’s AIDS lies in the transmission of the disease via exposure to blood. Believe it or not people actually thought she must be crazy to think someone could get AIDs by the exposure to blood products! Of course as a surgeon blood is something a surgeon is regularly exposed to & therefore this would have been a great concern to her. This battle is what caused her to walk away from mainstream medicine.
The connection she & I had was our personal battles with cancer. Both of us had turned to a Vegan diet to rid our bodies of cancer.
But her greatest example for me was no matter where she was she ALWAYS had a glass of water in her hand or very close by. I continually said I was going to get a photo of Lorraine holding a glass of water to post on my fridge, bathroom mirror, etc. just to give me a constant reminder of the importance of staying hydrated!
And when I first met her in the early 2000’s at a small gathering in her home in Southern California I kept wondering where she was because the woman presenting that day could not possibly be her. This woman was at least 20 years younger than what Lorraine would have had to be! I thought surely this woman must be her daughter who was about to soon introduce her mother! Of course it was indeed Lorraine herself!
Her passing from aortic stenosis was a shock to us all, but I was aware of the terrible stress she was under for several years as she dealt with caring for her husband, ex-California anti-gay Congressman, William Dannemeyer. He suffered a very severe case of Alzheimer’s at the end of his life necessitating her putting locks on all their doors & windows in order to keep track of him for his own safety. It was like dealing with a handful of full time jobs.
Plus for many years she was driven in her work of educating the public by writing one book after another as fast as she possibly could. How well I know & fully understand that incessant drive to get answers to the public in order to spare them unnecessary pain & suffering! You will be greatly missed by many Lorraine! Most especially by your two sons & your grandchildren who were everything to you!!!
