Gwendolyn Kay Forbes-Kirby March 4, 1953 – April 9, 2021
She fought bravely and hopefully against cancer for more than a year. At the same time she continued to treat her patients as they themselves were recovering from cancer. Following her experience as a Peace Corps volunteer, Gwen was a physical therapist for thirty-five years. She worked at the Mills-Peninsula Medical Center in Burlingame, CA, Kapiolani Women’s Center in Honolulu, HI, University of Virginia-HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital in Charlottesville, VA and Piedmont Hospital, Atlanta, GA. In Hawaii she became a Certified Lymphedema Therapist, treating patients with Lymphedema for decades. In Atlanta, she joined the Board of Directors for the Lighthouse Lymphedema Network which provides hope and help for patients with Lymphedema. A special fund has been created at the LLN to recognize Gwen’s work in this field.
