30 minutes with Sam Feldman, the founder of Men's Bereavement Network - a national Men's Bereavement Group.

Men grieve differently. That is what drove Sam Feldman to create an organization to fill the void after his wife of 53 years, Gretchen, lost her year-long battle with cancer. Finding himself reluctant to share his innermost feelings of sadness in mixed gender bereavement groups, and discovering many other widowers feel the same, he started a men-only group where he lives six months a year. When he further researched, he found that there is a paucity of men's groups focusing on bereavement and, drawing on his many years as an entrepreneur, established the Men's Bereavement Network, with a strong board of directors including Dr. George Cohn, a noted psychiatrist who served on the Board of Directors for America's first Hospice in New Haven, Connecticut.  Share this program!
