We are Tough Mudders! Thank you for your support!
July 24, 2017
Andy's Army is fighting through the mud to support the incredible doctors, nurses, social workers and therapists at the Hertzberg Palliative Care Institute at the Mount Sinai Health System in New York. Andy, my dear friend and our fearless team inspiration, is under Hertzberg's care as she receives her cancer treatment, and I couldn't be more grateful that she has them in her corner.
Palliative care is specialised medical care for people living with serious illness. It focuses on treating the pain, symptoms and distress of illness, giving patients an added layer of support and improving their quality of life. It is appropriate at any age and any stage of a serious illness, and alongside treatments that are meant to cure.
The Hertzberg Palliative Care Institute relies on philanthropy for a sizeable portion of their annual budget. Your donation will support important programs such as fellowships for palliative care doctors in training, support for early-stage researchers and physician recruitment and retention. It will also go toward supporting patients with massage and yoga therapy, art therapy and spiritual care.
Please give generously to see us in the mud, so we can support other Tough Mudders like Andy!
