"My Journeys From the Abyss."

Our presenter for this evening is Dr. Winston Chu, MD, FACS, a retired plastic surgeon, born in colonial Rangoon, Burma, and grew up in immediate post-independence period when parliamentary democracy reigned.

His idyllic early years were interrupted by the accidental death of his mother and political turmoil following the seizure of power by a socialist-military dictatorship and deterioration of family fortunes.

His immigration to the United States following on his father’s advice and contacts made during World War II in the Burma-India-China Theater.

His struggles and survival in Socialist Burma and in the USA as an immigrant during the 1970s as well as triumph over several life-threatening conditions formed the abyss of his life, also the basis of his book REBORN: Journeys from the Abyss (Tate Publishers).

Dr. Chu is married to Paulette and they have a son Marc.

A book signing will follow the presentation.

I invite you to walk beside Dr. Chu on his inspirational journey. You’ll witness how determination, faith and character turn dreams into reality and overcome life-threatening adversity. The spirit of America thrives in the soul of the naturalized citizen and you’ll find it every step of the way.
The Honorable Tom Ridge First Secretary, U.S. Department of Homeland Security 43rd Governor of Pennsylvania
