PHILANTHROPY TO ANSWER THE NEED FOR ACCESS TO PALLIATIVE MEDICINE
The Sherwin B. Nuland Foundation for Palliative Care was created in 2014 in response to the experience that Sherwin Nuland (Shep) and his family had when he was a patient with metastatic prostate cancer. The need for palliative care was immediate, access was limited but ultimately the support was there. We were fortunate, the rest of the world is often not so lucky.
We are committed to relieving human suffering for patients with serious disease and giving support to their families.
It is our belief that upon diagnosis of a serious disease, the patient has the right to receive the support of palliative care.
