President’s Report


July 2014

Dear Friends,

We invite you to a special evening next Friday with a friend of our organization, Jen Bosworth, as she takes the stage to perform her one woman show “Why Not Me… Love, Cancer and Jack White.”


Jen is generously donating a portion of the evening’s proceeds to Life Matters Media, so this performance is an ideal way to support our work and enjoy what is both humorous and poignant entertainment! Her production details her experience caring for her mother in the last months of life; both laughter and tears are guaranteed (

We were pleased to feature Jen in our 2013 fundraiser, “Stories that Matter,” and she was the hit of the evening. I also appeared alongside Jen during a Chicago Public Radio segment; you can listen and hear a snippet of her show here:

We hope to see you next Friday. In the meantime, stop by our website! Here’s what’s been happening online lately:

“Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant”: The Role Of Graphic Memoir In Medical Decision-Making (

Nursing: A Vital Role In End Of Life Care (

CareTree: A New Website Helps Families Coordinate Care (

Thanks, as always, for your support.
