Read What Physicians Say About Our Programs

“Thanks so much for your Lifewings presentation. Your entire presentation was spot on, smooth, articulate beyond compare, and well composed. But far beyond all of that, were the words you carefully chose to reflect your painful loss and your appreciation to those caregivers who helped your daughter. I was so choked up at the end, that I could barely say thanks. I wanted you know that I appreciated the entire session, and especially found meaning in your recounting of this terrible loss. I have signed on for 2 of the third phase sessions to help implement the principles of Lifewings. I doubt I would have been so willing if it had not been for your very convincing work. Thanks again for your very effective talk and for sharing your personal tragedy.”
Orthopedic Surgeon, Mt. Kisco, NY
