Life’s Door, (previously Tishkofet) assists patients & their families and health care professionals - focus on hope and enhance their quality of life, at a time when quality of life is often pushed aside to focus of longevity.
This unique organization was established by Oncologist, Professor Ben Corn - Director of the Department of Radiology at Ichilov Hospital (Tel Aviv), and his wife Dvora, a family therapist - to confront an acute void in the global medical establishment. Life’s Door provides a non-medical safety net that accompanies patients facing the impending end-of life, and their loved ones.
Life's Door offers programs for patients, families and professionals on a national level to foster greater awareness and promote a vital discourse in society.
We founded Life's Door-Tishkofet (LDT) 6 years ago to address one of the most difficult periods in the life cycle; illness and end of life. With roots in the US and its primary activity now in Israel, LDT has reached over 10,000 patients, family members and professionals who are grappling with these issues in their personal and professional lives.
Life's Door-Tishkofet has been transforming the experience of facing serious illness from one of anguish, confusion or denial to one that encourages collaboration, growth and healing for patients, families and professionals. Through individual consultations, workshops, seminars and retreats, the organization has provided the opportunity for a sincere, dynamic and robust dialogue that addresses the value of openly exploring illness and end of life issues. This approach instills purposefulness in the lives of its participants.
Life's Door-Tishkofet is proud to have its Founder and Chairman, Prof. Ben Corn, MD awarded the“Presidential Award for Volunteerism” 2011 for his extraordinary and unique contribution to Israeli society.
