I live in Columbus, Ohio. Recently, I became familiar with the Bloch Cancer Survivor’s Plaza seen here:
Apparently, there are several of these installed throughout the nation by the R.A. Bloch Cancer Foundation. The foundation is named for Richard and Annette Bloch—the former is the founder of H&R Block Inc. Why did all of this develop? Here’s what the Foundation’s site has to say:
In March, 1978, Richard A. Bloch was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and told that he had three months to live. He chose to fight for his life and was declared cancer-free two years later. For the remaining twenty-six years of his life, Dick and his wife, Annette, devoted themselves to helping the next person with cancer have the best chance of beating it. Dick passed away in July, 2004 of heart failure. The R.A. Bloch Cancer Foundation continues the mission under Annette’s leadership.
Is your firm doing anything along these lines (albeit on a smaller scale)? If so, share it with the accounting profession right here!
