Zbigniew Ziobro published an entry on social media on Saturday morning in which he expressed condolences to the relatives of oncologist Professor Elżbieta Starosławska, who died on Monday. This is the first entry by the Sovereign Poland politician since December last year. The MP and former Minister of Justice disappeared from public life due to health problems.

“Today I cannot take part in the last farewell of the late Professor Elżbieta Starosławska. My health does not allow it. But I would like to at least here express my deepest sympathy to her family and all her loved ones,” wrote the head of Sovereign Poland, former Minister of Justice Zbigniew Ziobro, who has not participated in political life for many weeks due to his health condition. This is his first post since December last year.

Ziobro wrote that prof. Starosławska was “an oncologist who, despite her vast knowledge and experience, constantly explored the latest achievements in world medicine.” “Thanks to her, my fight gives me hope today…” he confessed. “I will never forget what she did for me and thousands of patients of the Lublin Oncology Center of St. John of Dukla. How she sacrificed herself to help fight for our lives,” we read in the entry.

“While staying many days at the Lublin Center, I saw how the Professor enjoyed the genuine sympathy of the patients and the undisguised respect of the employees. She was a wonderful person and a professional doctor, but above all, she was the greatest support for us – her patients – wrote Ziobro.

“Outstanding oncologist”

About the death of prof. Elżbieta Starosławska, oncologist and long-time director of the Lublin Region Oncology Center, was informed on Tuesday by the Marshal of the Lublin Voivodeship, Jarosław Stawiarski. The doctor died on March 4.

“The professor’s dream was to create a full-profile center where patients are provided with professional care and treatment. This dream has come true. Thanks to the commitment and determination of Prof. Starosławska, she has built a team of excellent specialists. The highly specialized COZL is today a facility achieving world-class results in clinical treatment,” he wrote Stawiarski on Facebook.

Reports about Zbigniew Ziobro’s illness

At the end of 2023, Zbigniew Ziobro stopped appearing in public. When the politician’s prolonged absence from the Sejm sessions began to arouse media interest, the MPs of Sovereign Poland reported that the reason is health problems.

Patryk Jaki in an interview with Interia, he informed that Zbigniew Ziobro’s “doctors diagnosed an advanced malignant tumor.” MP Jacek Ozdoba later added on Radio Zet that “Ziobro has a very serious oncological disease” and that “it is a matter of the esophagus.”

At the beginning of February, Michał Wójcik he said in “Kropka nad i” on TVN24 that Ziobro is “seriously ill, he is taking another dose of chemotherapy.” He also appealed on his behalf not to underestimate the symptoms that may indicate this type of disease.
