From the Foreword
“From Orphan to Physician illustrates a truth that passes the test of time: a successful person must possess diligence, perseverance, humility, and other virtues. But most importantly, one must have faith in order to walk through life’s winding path.”
-Adapted from the Foreword by Rev. Peter Lai
About “From Orphan to Physician – The Winding Path”
Dr. Chan describes how after World War II, when civil war broke out in China, his family escaped to Hong Kong, how they survived in utter poverty, and how he went from being an orphan to graduating from Harvard Medical School and becoming a cardiologist. The writing is fluent, easy to read and understand. The sequence of events is realistic, emotionally moving, spiritually touching, heart-warming, and thought provoking. The author repeatedly experienced God’s miracles, enabling him to accomplish much. Yet he constantly hid himself and gave glory to God.
