HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals welcome Amy Robach


HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals are bringing Amy Robach, news anchor for ABC’s “Good Morning America,” to Eau Claire for a community presentation April 16 at 7 p.m. at the State Theatre (316 Eau Claire Street). Robach is this year’s Monsignor Klimek Healing Presence Lecturer.

Robach faced an unexpected journey with breast cancer in 2013 after being diagnosed following an on-air mammogram on GMA. Hear her powerful message filled with light and inspirational moments as she explores the highs and lows she experienced. Listen as Robach details the importance of staying positive and remaining hopeful in the face of adversity.

This event is made possible in part by the Monsignor Klimek Healing Presence Endowment of the HSHS Sacred Heart Foundation. Robach is the eighth person to be chosen as a Monsignor Klimek Healing Presence Endowment Lecturer. Established in 2007 with the guidance of Monsignor Klimek, the endowment is a means to honor and perpetuate Monsignor Klimek’s unique ministry by recognizing the importance of spirituality in healing.

Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased at www.eauclairearts.com or by calling the State Theatre at (715) 832-2787. Proceeds from the event will go to the Monsignor Klimek Healing Presence Endowment.

“Spirituality isn’t religion,” said Ann Kaiser, director of HSHS Sacred Heart Foundation. “It’s what is important to the individual – what gives them purpose and meaning. Father Klimek wanted his endowment to foster, inspire and motivate spiritual care to the sick.”
