This year, we are delighted to host Lee Tomlinson, cancer survivor on a mission. The life mission of “Patient Lee” is to inspire healthcare professionals to return compassionate C.A.R.E. to its rightful place at the forefront of modern medicine to benefit their patients, colleagues, their hospital’s bottom line, and perhaps most importantly, themselves.
Finding his mission wasn’t even remotely easy.
Award-winning television producer, movie studio owner, ex-professional athlete, and TED Talk presenter, “Patient Lee” is literally alive today due to a lifetime of continuous, extraordinarily effective medical treatment and deeply compassionate care.
Unfortunately, during a recent battle with Stage 3+ throat cancer, “Patient Lee” became painfully aware of the trauma caused by treatment lacking in compassion that nearly drove him to take his own life. What saved him from suicide was one single, powerful act of compassion by his doctor and friend.
That single act of compassion not only renewed the will of “Patient Lee” to live but also sparked within him a burning desire to devote his life to reconnecting medical professionals with the immense and scientifically proven power of compassion to heal not only their patients but themselves as well.
With his renewed passion for life and newfound purpose, “Patient Lee” created the C.A.R.E. Effect Movement. This Movement is designed to inspire America’s 12.5 million healthcare professionals to reconnect with the compassion that got them into medicine in the first place – and then inspires them to redouble their efforts to provide even more compassion than ever before to better heal their patients, colleagues, and the World, but first and foremost, themselves.
Join us at the Scott Conference Center in Omaha. All survivors and caregivers, donors and partners as well as the public are welcome.
