The promise and power of Pediatric Palliative Care featured in lengthy January 20, 2014 New Yorker  article. A must-read! The Lord Foundation funded the foundational study referenced in the article…

The Lord Foundation funded the foundational study referenced in the article, which identified the scope and reach of existing pediatric palliative care programs in children’s hospitals nationwide.

The study also concluded that such programs are only able to care for a fraction of the families in need, due to a lack of funding.

And listen here  to a related public radio piece with Dr. Groopman and  Dr. Joanne Wolfe.

Mountain Run

First Annual South Lincoln Mountain Run in South Lincoln, Vermont raises money for the Foundation.

SL Mountain Run

On November 9th, 2013 the intrepid runners completed 20K and 30K through the mountains of Vermont. It was a beautiful morning as the runners set off at 9:30 AM.  The temperature was in the low 30s but the sun was out and spirits were high.  By just after noon they were all back at the start, tired (they had climbed over 1500 feet!) and happy and so proud of the support from dozens of friends and family. Together, through their generosity and those of their friends, we raised almost $17,000 for the Foundation! Plans are to run it again in 2014.  Contact Charlie if you want to join the fun.
