Dr. Somer Karaalp Memorial Fund

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is with tremendous sadness, that we learned of the passing our esteemed colleague,  Dr Ilyas Somer Karaalp.  His death is untimely, tragic, and sobering. 

We can all agree that his gentle disposition, the compassion he displayed for his patients, and the respect that he both commanded and gave us will be sorely missed.

For those of us who knew Dr Karaalp, we know that he was dedicated to his profession, but perhaps more importantly--he was dedicated to his family.  No doubt, his loving wife, and two beautiful daughters have lost an integral part of their lives, but we want to keep them in our thoughts and prayers.

Please join us in expressing our deepest condolences to his family by raising funds to express our heartbreak for them.

Sincerely,
on behalf of the staff at Long Beach Memorial Medical and Community Hospital of Long Beach
