A Message from Lynda
My relationship with Michael was grounded in service to others and giving back. From the moment we met, we were a true team and brought out the best in one another. Throughout our marriage, we partnered with organizations near and far—with a focus on our South Florida community—to support children, animals and those in need. This love of giving back led us in 2010 to establish the Michael S. Gordon, M.D. Charitable Foundation.
Michael’s work enabled us to serve and support amazing causes throughout the years. When Michael passed away in July of 2017, I was determined to continue his legacy on a variety of fronts. His accomplishments as a physician, philanthropist and visionary are forever captured by the Michael S. Gordon Center for Simulation and Innovation, the Gordon Alliance, the millions impacted by his groundbreaking work and his colleagues.
Carrying the torch for Michael’s charitable heart—one of his most beloved qualities—is my mission. With years together advocating for and supporting children’s charities, I decided to share Michael’s story of tenacity and love through a children’s series titled “Coogie The Dumpster Cat.” This passion project will help raise funds to continue our partnership with local organizations all while sharing Michael’s memory with young children. Thank you for joining me in my work to honor Michael and improve the world around us.
