In Memoriam: Rich Grady, MD

April 26, 2017

Dr. Richard Grady died on April 25 after a valiant fight with glioblastoma. He was the first person in the world to receive a revolutionary treatment for the cancer, receiving direct infusions of his own T-cells after they had been engineered to destroy cancer.

Rich was a Professor of Urology at the University of Washington, and on the staff of Seattle Children's Hospital since 1998. Rich was a longtime PSR National Board member, and served as president of the Washington chapter. Rich and his wife, Dr. Laura Hart, were co-recipients of WPSR's 2016 Malcolm Peterson Award for their compassionate service in pursuit of peace. They have given of themselves in many ways over the years—through medical service, teaching, and outreach to people in the most difficult circumstances in India, Alaska, Africa and Gaza. They traveled with WPSR medical delegations to Gaza on many occasions. Rich performed pediatric urological surgeries and taught colleagues on all of these trips.

We will remember Rich for his commitment to healing the world. We are so grateful for the example Rich provided, showing us what a life in service of peace looks like. He will be greatly missed.

There will be a memorial/celebration of life service for Dr. Grady at the Center for Spiritual Living in Seattle on Saturday, June 3 at 2 pm. The address is 5801 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105, and directions can be found here. Please RSVP to Laura Hart.
