When Breath Becomes Air
Physician, Widow of the #1 Bestselling Author of When Breath Becomes Air


Dr. Lucy Kalanithi is a clinical associate professor of Medicine at the Stanford University School of Medicine and the widow of the late Dr. Paul Kalanithi, author of the #1 New York Times best-selling memoir When Breath Becomes Air, to which she wrote the epilogue. She completed her medical degree at Yale, her residency training at the University of California-San Francisco, and a postdoctoral fellowship in healthcare delivery innovation at Stanford’s Clinical Excellence Research Center.

A Free Community Event made possible through generosity.

Legacy Giving

There is no finer gift than one that offers health and hope to others.

As you plan for your future you make several important decisions. One of those carefully planned decisions may be to create a lasting impact through a legacy gift. Legacy giving is a meaningful way to make a difference that will endure beyond your lifetime, impacting the lives of generations to come.

Consider including St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation in your estate plans to ensure health and healing for generations to come.
