CEO’s Message
Getting to know you
I have been so touched by the number of
people I talk to in the neighborhoods, restaurants
and business community. Nearly every single
person I’ve told about my new job and why
I have relocated has a story to tell me about
Hospice Buffalo. The density of appreciation
of our program among people living in this
region is amazing and refreshing to me.
I want to say thank you to all of you for being
so thoughtful and earnest in your efforts to

Check your mailbox

Hospice Foundation’s
Spring Appeal request
from Robert Mihelbergel.
Your generous donations
will help people like Robert,
Patricia Ahern, RN, MBA,
welcome me and get me settled in. What an amazing organization! I feel
so sure I’ll be able to serve you with the same energy and dedication that I
see in all of you. I hope that the time will come when you feel like we were
always moving along a trajectory to this time in our lives and finding our
way, together, to the future of CHPC.
A little about me… All of my nursing jobs were fueled by the epinephrine
rush: trauma ER, Coronary Care, ICU. Along the way, I realized I could have
more influence on quality care by focusing on serving front-line staff that
needed coaching, mentoring and encouragement. And then I got a MBA
because it was the fastest ‘M’ I could get while raising my children. After
that degree, I had a transformational responsibility for the care of scores
of victims of the AIDS epidemic when I was responsible for patient care
services at a hospital which was ground zero for HIV in Chicago. Of necessity,
that’s when I learned about hospice….and I was forever changed. For the
last 18 years, I was the CEO at Rainbow Hospice in Chicago.
I believe that good palliative and end-of-life care should be organic and
part of community life. These experiences are life experiences for patients
and families - not just medical experiences. Because of the wonderful work
of establishing Hospice Buffalo as so significant in this region, we have a
great boost in terms of the usefulness and effectiveness of our care and
services - because they are mostly already accepted as part of our everyday
expectations. This is very important, especially now with all the healthcare
reform changes that will highlight the importance of improving the quality
of living in communities.
I believe we are an organization with a sense of destiny and we can use our
mission as the north star while we navigate and take hold of our future.
When I talked to my mom in Chicago recently…she told me: “Don’t forget
the ratio!” I replied, “Mom, what ratio is that?” Answer: “Listen twice as
much as you talk. That’s why you have two ears and one mouth.” Thanks,
mom. I’m trying! ■

Chief Executive Officer
Thankful for Hospice at Home
“They’ll keep me as comfortable as possible.”
It’s not often when one meets a person who can “tell it like
it is.” Robert Mihelbergel talks right from his heart. Maybe
his ability to speak directly comes from being a teacher
of 36 plus years, or maybe it’s from his life experiences.
Either way, Robert is upfront about his feelings of life and
death. The former Navy medical corpsman spent six
years working on board ships and in hospitals during the
Vietnam era before going to school at Niagara County
Community College and Buffalo State College where he
earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
“I am blessed in many ways,” reflects Robert during
an afternoon interview at his cozy Kenmore home. “My
son and daughter-in-law live here in Tonawanda. My
daughter married an army man and they’ve been all over
the U.S. and some foreign countries. Right now they are
stationed in Hawaii. All in all as a father and grandfather,
the Lord has blessed me with the most wonderful family
who really cares about mom and dad. They’ve helped
me through all life’s situations. They go way above and
beyond the call of duty and it’s much appreciated.”
A patient of Hospice Buffalo home care, Robert loves
being able to live out the rest of his life in his home. He
and his wife, Sharon, were married for over 45 years.
“We chose to live in Buffalo,” he said while sitting on the
couch in his living room. “We bonded with some really
nice people. We’ve lived in this house over 30 years.
My wife died in 2011, but, again, I chose to stay here
because I love everything about Kenmore and about
Western New York. This is where they will put me to rest
in Mount Olivet cemetery.”
As fate would have it, Robert
and his wife have both used
Hospice Buffalo. “My wife had
Crohn’s disease and was given
steroid treatment. It led from
one negative to another and
eventually it led to ovarian
cancer. Then thyroid cancer,
breast cancer and lung cancer.
When my wife’s last surgeon
said she could do no more for
her, my question was ‘Well,
what does that mean?’ and the
Sharon Mihelbergel
surgeon said ‘Sharon is at the
end of her life’s stage. There’s
nothing more to prolong her life’ and so I asked what do
I do now and they answered ‘Hospice.’
The Mihelbergels met with Hospice Buffalo in their
home. “I asked Hospice what I was able to do as a caregiver
and they explained everything in detail. My wife and I
looked at each other and said this option of being able
to die at home is wonderful. So we set up the house so
Sharon could spend her last days here. I played music
for her all the time; mostly native American flute music,
it calmed her and kept her going. We followed the orders
that Hospice gave us. We fed her when she could eat,
we laughed with her when she could laugh and we cried
Robert with his son, Eric.
with her. I was holding her hand the day she died. If a
husband has to lose a wife that he loves dearly, there’s no
better way than for me to lose her that way.”
Over a year later, Robert experienced a sharp pain in
his body. “I was visiting my son and we were playing
street hockey with the granddaughters and after we were
done, my right shoulder hurt tremendously,” he recalls.
“I called my doctor who was a sports medicine doctor
and he said there was something wrong... (the) pain was
very deep. They did a bone scan.”
The doctors told him he had cancer in his bone and in his
lung. “Buffalo Medical Group sent me to their oncologists
who did a wonderful job. They got rid of my bone pain
through radiation; I had 10 radiation treatments. Yes, I
have bone cancer. Yes, I have lung cancer. But at the
moment, I am pain free. When I cough, sometimes that
hurts. After five surgeries with five biopsies, it showed a
long, small cell lung cancer I had that spread to the bone.”
After eleven chemo treatments with Buffalo Medical Group,
Robert’s condition was rapidly declining. “I experienced
a lot of negativisms from the chemicals; lost my hair, my
energy, lost my appetite, lost my will to live. And actually,
I prayed for God to take me because I felt I had nothing
left to do. I was bedridden and was sleeping a lot. I was
a very sick man. I came down with C-diff cholitis twice
and ended up with a bowel obstruction and had to go
back for another surgery. Another tumor was discovered.
The chemicals hadn’t killed the cancer and the doctor
said ‘Robert, there’s nothing more I can do for you.’ And
I asked, “Is there any chance you can do something for to
increase my quality of life?” I was in the hospital for a few
weeks at which time I knew I needed Hospice Home Care.
“My wife Sharon had Hospice Team 4; so when they
came to set up my program I realized I knew everyone
on the present Team 4. The house is set up the exact
same way as it was for my wife, which is kind of weird.
The fact that I ended up with lung cancer was like ‘Wow,’
I expected to go a different way. I’m only 68…I raced
canoes, rode bicycles, I was a school teacher.”

Beechwood Homes during the last weeks of her life. She died on
December 18 at 102 years.
Hospice Buffalo kindly offered us a place to stay at 47 Hawthorne
during Mom’s wake and funeral. My family (wife, daughter, son-inlaw, 2 children and a close family friend) drove in on the evening
of December 26 from Connecticut not knowing what to expect.
We were impressed by the friendly, helpfulness of both Camille
who helped us reserve the home and Amanda who led us to and
familiarized us with the home. We were amazed by the comfort
and level of detail that went into the design and decor of the Hawthorne St. home. The beauty of the place was only surpassed by
the surprising touches (like plush beds, kitchen conveniences, toiletries and tissues) which communicated loving care to us. The
home gave us a common base to return to, play with the children
and to talk about the days events. The measure of comfort this
gave to us under our conditions was incalculable.
Highlights include a family dinner,
an amazing race, drumming,
expressive arts, horseback riding,
equine therapy, and more!

“I’ve gained at least 10 or 12 pounds
back,” smiled Robert. He receives visits
from the Hospice Buffalo physician,
nurse, social worker, pastoral care, home
health aide, and others at his request.
“The nurse comes once a week now
because I’m doing well,” noted Robert.
“She’ll do all her blood work, all the
vital signs, the weight gain, and weight
loss. “She’ll check on my medications
and she’ll let Dr. (Elizabeth) Maher
know about me. I had a big sleep issue
and nurse Leslie and Dr. Maher tried
different medicines to address the
problem. I’m sleeping very well now.”
While Robert has been feeling well, he
knows his condition will decline in a few
short months. He is not bitter about
that. He says he knows what to expect.
“I’m weak but then cancer will do
that to you,” he admits. “I do my own
banking, I pay my own bills, I clean my
own house when I can, I’m pretty much
able to take care of myself at this stage.
My God gives me all the strength, all the
faith, all the energy, everything I need
to get through this. My faith tells me
that we all die. There’s no stopping it. I
feel young at 68, but nevertheless my
God will take me when He’s ready. My
children know I’m accepting this totally,
no negatives with it. It’s okay. Knowing
that Hospice will keep me pain free,
add more nurses, more aides, more
therapists, more professional staff as
needed has reassured me that my
house, my home, is my caregiving
hotel. They’ll make me as comfortable
as possible for as long as I’m breathing.
The support groups and the things
they’ve done with me for my wife…it’s
not only a medical organization, it’s a
personal organization. I have a social
worker and a chaplain that works
with me; I pick up the phone anytime
I want and I’ve got someone from
Hospice to help me. I thank Hospice for
that.” ■

Diane, Buffalo
Grateful for
Compassionate Care
and Family Support
I am proud that my relationship with
Hospice Buffalo continues and has come
full circle.
Dana R. Dee, Signature Society
Chairperson with her mother, Esther.
I first became involved with Hospice
Buffalo as a member of the Hospice
Foundation’s Board, raising funds to
support the amazing care that Hospice
provides to patients and families. Today,
more than eight years later, I am pleased
to still be very involved with Hospice as
a member of the Founders Board and
Chairperson of the Signature Society,
working to communicate Hospice’s
mission to those who are in need of
its services.
In 2006, my family and I experienced the care that Hospice provides
first hand, and for that I am grateful. My mom, Esther, was admitted to
Hospice during the now infamous October Storm, whose ice, snow, and
wind left many Western New Yorkers displaced and without power. The
outage even affected the Hospice Mitchell Campus in Cheektowaga where
Mom was staying in the Inpatient Unit. But, in spite of the raging storm,
she was well cared for and safe. The facility’s generators immediately
began providing heat, light, and the necessary power to operate the essential
medical equipment. The auxiliary power was even able to maintain the
temperature of the lobby’s fish tank. Battery operated lanterns throughout
the halls lent a subdued, but peaceful atmosphere to the facility, enabling
the nurses, aides, doctors, and volunteers to continue to provide the
excellent care for which they are known.
Mom’s journey ended during that storm. We will always hold dear and
be grateful to Hospice Buffalo for the compassionate care they provided
to my mom and the support they gave to me and my family. Three years
after my mom’s passing, we had a second experience with Hospice. My
aunt was admitted to the Hospice Inpatient Unit, where she received the
same wonderful care my mom did. I especially remember Mark Fanning,
the charge nurse in the unit, and how he lovingly looked after my aunt.
Our community is so fortunate to have Hospice Buffalo as a resource. It is
one of the most well respected hospices in the country. Their motto to “do
something special every day” for patients, families, and friends truly helps
make one of the most difficult times in our lives easier and more rewarding.
The Hospice Buffalo clinicians help patients and families understand the
events that are experienced at end of life and enable patients to live each
remaining day to the fullest. ■

With Special Thanks
A tradition that began in 2008
continues with passion, providing our
patients and their families A Dinner
to Remember during what might
be their final days. Hospice Buffalo,
together with Tom Lombardo, owner
of Ristorante Lombardo collaborate
with some of the finest local
restaurants and work together to
provide these special family dinners.
The idea is to deliver Hospice patients
a delicious meal to share with their
loved ones. Even more wonderful
than the meal is the opportunity
for patients’ families and friends to
spend time with their loved one and
create a lasting memory to cherish.
Tom Lombardo remains a key
component in this venture. Each year
he recruits a team of Buffalo’s finest
restaurants to join him in providing
meals for A Dinner to Remember.
O nc e a m o nth , a re s t aur ant
generously “hosts” a dinner for
patients and their families at the
Hospice Mitchell Campus and
St. John Baptist Hospice Buffalo
Inpatient Unit. The results are
nothing short of amazing! In the past
seven years, over 8,000 meals have
been served to Hospice patients and
their loved ones. The true impact
to the patients and families is
Now entering its eighth year, the
Dinner to Remember program is
going strong. Our special thanks
to Tom Lombardo (Ristorante
Lombardo), Adam Goetz (Crave),
Tricia Hanny Browne (Eagle House),
Oded Rauvenpoor (The Falafel Bar),
Mark Hutchinson (Hutch’s), David
Schutte (Oliver’s), Joseph Salvatore
(Salvatore Italian Gardens), Chuck
Mauro/Henry Gorino (Siena), and
Paul Jenkins (Tempo) for making a
memorable difference in the lives of
our patients and their families. ■

special occasion gifts.
A caring way to express love and recognition for
someone is to give a gift to Hospice in their honor.
Occasions and celebratory milestones such as births,
weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and graduations are
a wonderful opportunity to fulfill a personal gesture of
thoughtfulness while affording support for patients with
advanced illness and their families.
To the generous and considerate donors who have
chosen to make Hospice the recipient of their kindness,
we are most appreciative.
