Going the Extra Mile
A group of volunteers in JFCS’ palliative care program went beyond providing comfort to the sick and the dying. They created an endowed fund to ensure the care of future generations in need.
A Life-long Love Affair
After 14 years, Barry and Lisa were as in love with each other as in the early days of their courtship. “When I saw and heard Lisa for the first time—at a museum exhibit—I knew she was the one for me,” says Barry. “She was warm, beautiful, and open-hearted. I’d been waiting for someone like her for my entire life. She was my beacon of light.”
So when Lisa, 50, was diagnosed with uterine cancer this past October, the blow for Barry was as unbearable as the pain for Lisa.
