Precious Time

Jennifer O'Brien and the Rev. Mary Vano
Monday July 24th 2023

On this episode, hear from Jennifer O’Brien, author of The Hospice Doctors Widow: A Journal.  Jennifer’s career has been as an educator and administrator in the medical field.  She was married to Dr. Bob Lehmberg, a physician who cared for hospice patients.  After Bob was diagnosed with a stage IV metastatic cancer, Jennifer became his caregiver, and documented their journey through diagnosis, treatments, caregiving, and death.  Her art journal is a combination of Bob’s wisdom and perspective as a hospice physician, and her honest and beautiful reflections as a spouse and caregiver.  Now known as the Hospice Doctor’s Widow, Jennifer is sharing the wisdom gained through her book, her website, and numerous speaking engagements.  To learn even more, visit Jennifer's website at hospicedrswidow.com
