Who we are
Life’s Door is a non-profit organization established by Prof. Benjamin Corn, director of the Institute of Radiotherapy at the Sourasky Medical Center in Tel Aviv
The focal point of discussion in the medical and nursing systems is health and survival, while the personal and emotional side of the patient as an additional therapeutic vehicle is ignored, as is empowerment, closing circles and separation.
Life’s Door is committed to promoting the awareness about and importance of the relationship between treatment, healing and nursing, and wellbeing of the patient.
People suffering from life-threatening or chronic illness, the elderly, people who are nearing the end of life, their families, and the medical and nursing professionals
