Greenwich Hospital Giving In the News

In Memoriam - Betsy Corman 1946-2015

 Dedicated Greenwich Hospital volunteer, supporter and friend Betsy Corman passed away at her home in Stamford on April 17, 2015 after a valiant 18 month battle with pancreatic cancer.  Though petite and soft spoken, Betsy was a powerhouse in her commitment to helping Greenwich Hospital’s oncology department care for cancer patients and their families.
