Charity Sunshine Tillemann Dick is an American-born soprano. She has performed in opera houses and concert halls across the United States, Europe, and Asia. Charity is also a survivor of a double lung transplant, which she received at the Cleveland Clinic in September 2009. She continues to sing professionally and also shares her remarkable story of triumph, determination, and love for music.
“Inspirational stories about patients and their physicians are everywhere in medicine, but this one — about a dangerously ill young soprano who refused to give up her singing and the doctor who told her ‘a happy patient is a healthy patient’ — is one of our favorites.”
