Cathy Buck

Honorary co-chair

“Our Support of this next step for Kathy’s House is a natural extension of our 16‐year relationship. As an academic medical center and regional destination, the Froedtert & MCW health network draws patients from throughout the state and nation. The availability of an affordable home away from home is a tremendous relief for patients who must travel for care.”

Peter Engel

Honorary co-chair

“The Kathy’s House associates and volunteers provide an incredibly warm environment enabling families to focus on what’s important…supporting each other and working towards healthy outcomes.”

Sue Derus

Co-chair

“Kathy’s House is so much more than a place, it is a truly remarkable phenomenon. It is a community which welcomes, shelters, embraces, supports, empathizes with and empowers all who come through the doors. We are thrilled to expand our bricks and mortar so that we may serve everyone in need”

Jack Anick

Co-chair

“My family benefited from a place like Kathy’s House by giving us a warm and comfortable place to stay just as Kathy’s house does for patients & families needing critical medical care. You don’t know how important that was to us in our time of need.”
