Life Matters Media
Quality of life at the end of life

Remembering Lou

Dear Friends,

He’s the man whose memory inspired one of our founding board members, Celeste Gallati, to dedicate her life and time to Life Matters Media’s mission.

Lou Cagnina lived well at the end of life, and his spirit will speed Celeste along the route of the Chicago Marathon next month.

Lou’s story is the embodiment of our mission to help others experience true quality of life at the end of life. Celeste hopes to carry your support with her as she runs, and we invite you to learn more about Celeste and Lou by clicking here where she shares their story.

We are so fortunate to have her on team LMM... both running in the marathon and supporting our day to day outreach enabling families to identify their values and goals to guide future care!

Thanks for taking the time to support Celeste. If you’re ready to make a difference now, click here.

P.S. LMM’s “sideline” Chicago Marathon team will be darting across the city to support Celeste on October 8th. If you’d like to join the fun (and sprint!) get in touch with us!
