Ford was introduced to the Philadelphia community on July 17, 2012 as Magee’s first ever facility therapy dog. Lawyers and staff from Anapol Schwartz were at Magee to perform service and to welcome Ford. Ford has quickly become an integral part of the occupational therapy team, working with patients suffering life-altering injuries and trying to adapt to new lives.
Funding for Ford came from the Casey Feldman Memorial Foundation. Casey Feldman was the daughter of Anapol Schwartz partner Joel Feldman. Casey was killed in 2009 by a distracted driver. Joel said “I am so thankful that we can remember Casey in this special way and that my Anapol Schwartz family has been so supportive. Many of our firm’s clients have received treatment at Magee following terrible injuries it is out privilege to be able to help Magee in its mission. We are thrilled that ford is making such a difference in patients treatment.”
