What motivates your desire to give back?
Helping the sick and feeding the hungry are embedded in my religious values.
Why are you supporting the medical center?
I look at the work of the hospital as a ministry which is clearly included in the Scriptural mandate of helping those who cannot help themselves in their lives.
Why did you agree to join the foundation board?
My resolve to join grew when my daughter came to St. Joseph’s during the loss of her twin daughters. The Catholic-based care that she received warmed both my wife’s and my hearts.
