I have witnessed firsthand the enormous difficulties that patients and their loved ones may face on the end-of-life journey

I learned from my experiences that because our health care system understandably is focused on prevention and cure, hospice palliative care doesn’t always get the attention and the resources it deserves, and needs. That’s what drew me to support the amazing work of St. Joseph’s Hospice.

It is a model residential palliative care facility, offering expert, compassionate care for its residents, and a range of support services for family and friends. There truly is no place like it in the city. In fact, there should be many more places like it – everywhere.

This feeling is shared not only by me, but my partners and colleagues at Lerners LLP who have enthusiastically supported this very worthy organization. This support includes acting as the title sponsor at Handbags for Hospice for the past three years. We at Lerners LLP are proud of our connection to Hospice and to the incredible support it provides to the residents of this city.
