I would like to thank Professor Ray Lowenthal for his assistance and feedback, and the staff of Australian Doctor for their assistance in retrieving archived material.

Competing interests:

I am a co-founder of the Gawler Foundation and the former wife of the patient. I left the employ of the Gawler Foundation in 1996. My memoirs were published in October 2008 as an aid to correcting years of misinformation and misreporting about my former husband’s remission.
