Soaringwords was started by Lisa Honig Buksbaum after three experiences with death and illness in her family. Within a ten-month period, her only sibling died suddenly, her dad had his second bout of cancer and was hospitalized for several months, and her oldest child was catastrophically ill. Today, her dad and son are recovered. She has devoted the past 13 years to launching Soaringwords, a non-profit organization that inspires ill children and families to heal.
