Exciting Programming Change! Dr. BJ Miller to Give Keynote Address
We have a programming change to this year’s luncheon. Our original keynote speaker, Melissa Gilbert, is unable to join us for our event. While this change was unexpected, we are thrilled to announce American physician, author, storyteller, burn survivor and advocate for patient-centered care, BJ Miller, MD, as our featured speaker!
Dr. Miller is one of the pre-eminent speakers on patient-centered care, palliative and end-of-life care today. In addition to his incredibly popular TED Talk “What Really Matters at the End of Life”, he has appeared on Super Soul Sunday with Oprah Winfrey, Goop with Gwyneth Paltrow and his story is featured on Netflix’s 2018 short documentary, End Game.
Dr. Miller is a triple amputee survivor whose personal experience led him to pioneer a new model of patient-centered palliative care and prompted him to become an advocate for a healthcare system that maximizes quality of life while minimizing unnecessary suffering. He is the President and CEO of Mettle Health, a company he co-founded with the aim to provide personalized, holistic consultations for any patient or caregiver and serves as the Dream Foundation Honorary Medical Chair, the only national dream-granting organization for terminally-ill adults. We are
excited to welcome him to the stage to share his insight on compassionate dying — and living fully until you do. We feel his message and experience in hospice and palliative care aligns perfectly with our mission of making each moment matter for those we serve. We know that Dr. Miller’s message will be incredibly empowering, and we look forward to hearing his inspirational remarks.
2022 Luncheon Chairs
We are delighted to announce that Tucker Enthoven and her mother, Julie Ford, will serve as Chairs of the 2022 Each Moment Matters Luncheon. This year’s luncheon will be held on Friday, September 23, 2022 in the Chantilly Ballroom at the Hilton Anatole Hotel.
Both of these Chairs are incredibly accomplished and respected in our community, but beyond that, they share a unique bond that brings them together to help raise funds for the Faith Presbyterian Hospice Caring Fund. Both Tucker and Julie have personally experienced the compassionate care and services that Faith Presbyterian Hospice provides as they cared for a family friend. We are honored to have these two individuals, who truly understand what a difference the Each Moment Matters Luncheon makes in the lives of patients and families, chair this event.
WFAA’s Jason Whitely to Emcee 2022 Luncheon
Jason Whitely, Each Moment Matters Emcee, is a senior News Reporter and host of Inside Texas Politics at WFAA Channel 8. In his 28-year career, Jason has been honored with 24 Emmy Awards, two Edward R. Murrow Awards and two dozen additional accolades for excellence in journalism. He is also a five-time Emmy Winner for Best General Assignment Reporter.
While reporting for WFAA, Jason has had the opportunity to cover stories across the various Forefront Living entities. Through this connection he is inspired by the work this organization does for its patients, residents and their families, as well as the services provided to the broader community. This inspiration led him to serve as Emcee for the 2022 Luncheon and share the far-reaching effects of the care provided by the Faith Hospice team.

About the Each Moment Matters Luncheon
Navigating life’s final passage is a profound experience for individuals and families. Whether in the home or at the T. Boone Pickens Hospice Center, Faith Presbyterian Hospice helps that transition become less about loss and more about comfort, enrichment, love and celebration. The programs and services made possible through the Each Moment Matters Luncheon provide for the care of unfunded patients as well as the special programming and clinical services that we call the “Faith Difference.”
A unique feature of the Each Moment Matters Luncheon is recognizing individuals throughout our community who are making an extraordinary difference in the lives of others. They exemplify what it means to make each moment matter, and inspire us to do the same. By allowing us to honor them, they make even more extraordinary moments possible in the lives of those served by Faith Presbyterian Hospice.
