Edith Cavell (1865-1915): As we continue our journey through women in medicine, we come to the fascinating story of Edith Cavell, a British nurse who pioneered nursing in Belgium on the eve of World War I. Known for her kindness and compassion, Edith risked all to help wounded British soldiers escape from the Germans during the war. Not only did her courage inspired the English nation, but her sacrifice and forgiveness in the face of injustice offer us a beautiful picture of a Christ-like life.
