dam Goldstein achieved
his dream of becoming a
doctor. But in death, he
may play an even greater
role as a teacher.
After battling
cancer for seven
months, Dr.
Goldstein, 26,
graduated from
the University
of Michigan
Medical School
in June. The
Flint native
compiled a 100-
page manu-
script about his
experiences
with his illness,
and spoke to his
fellow graduates Dr. Adam Goldstein
at commence-
ment about being a patient.
Dr. Goldstein died Saturday,
Sept. 16.
His manuscript will ,be pub-
lished by Little, Brown & Co. of
Boston. Titled Hidden Lessons,
it is directed to third-year med-
ical. students.
Dr. Goldstein's wife, Michelle,
said Little, Brown may publish
a second book incorporating
Adam's story with the manu-
script.
During the early summer, Dr.
Goldstein seemed to be making
progress against his disease.
Originally believed to be non-
Hodgkin's lymphoma, the cancer
turned out to be Ewing's sarco-
ma, an aggressive bone cancer.

Dr. Goldstein was a graduate
of Flint Southwestern High
School and Michigan State Uni-
versity. Family members said his
uncle, Dr. Mervin Goldstein of
California,
served as his
mentor and role
model and visit-
ed Adam 4-5
times during his
illness. Dr.
Goldstein also
spoke at the fu-
neral.
Dr. Adam
Goldstein is sur-
vived by his
wife, Michelle;
his parents,
Ronald and
Miriam Gold-
stein of Flint; his
brother, Myron,. of Newport
Beach, Calif.; grandparents,
William and Zelda Goldstein of
Irvine, Calif.; his aunt and un-
cle, Dr. Mervin and Carol Gold-
stein of Newport Coast, Calif.; a
cousin, Ethan Goldstein of
Waltham, Mass.; his father- and
mother-in-law, Mark and Mar-
garet Eichner of Commerce
Township; and his brother-in-
law, Adam Eichner of Commerce
Township.

or every divorced Jewish
woman, there is a divorced
Jewish man.
Bernie, a single Jewish
father, wonders why there isn't
a proportionate number of pro-
grams for unmarried dads.
"It doesn't make any sense,"
said Bernie, a Detroit resident
who did not want his last name
used. "Women are given all
kinds of aid and support. What
about us?"
To answer his question, Jew-
ish Experiences For Families en-
listed the help of psychologist
Dan Stettner.
Last month, Dr. Stettner met

with Bernie and a handful of
other single fathers who showed
up at a JEFF focus group.
"These divorced men were an-
gry with the system and its fa-
voritism toward mothers," Dr.
Stettner said. "They felt Jewish
communal agencies were more
sympathetic to mothers than fa-
thers. Divorced fathers think be-
cause they only see their
children according to a visitation
schedule, they're missing out on
the observances, traditions and
programming their children
tend to attend with their moth-
ers."
