Hope Connections

On Dec. 7, Bernie and Janice Robinson opened their historic Capitol Hill home to honor the founding board of Hope Connections for Cancer Support. The last of its members will rotate off the board at the end of this year. The 20 founding board members, led by Founding Board Chair Bernie Kogod, raised $500,000 in two years to open a cancer support center that has, since its opening in 2007, had more than 25,000 visits to its facility by people with cancer and their loved ones to participate in free programs of emotional support, education, wellness and hope. Bernie hailed executive director Paula Rothenberg as “the glue to everything that we have always done.” He said “what better reward can you get but helping people.”
