Amy Reed, physician and patient who “moved mountains” to end widespread use of power morcellation, dies at 44

“I always wanted to be a doctor when I was little,” Reed said in 2015. “I wanted to go into medicine and be a doctor and fix things, and cure the world.”

Reed’s dream came true, albeit not in the way she envisioned.

Reed, a Pennsylvania native, died May 24 from complications stemming from disseminated uterine cancer. She was 44.
