Dr. Banchik Remembers Her Father with a Special Gift
Lillian Harvey Banchik, MD, made a special gift to the Oley Foundation in memory of Homer M. Harvey, her father who passed away November 2015 at the age of ninety-one. Mr. Harvey was a lifelong inspiration to his daughter, teaching her to never tolerate “glass ceilings” nor to accept anything less than her best in everything she did. Dr. Harvey has tried to live up to these ideals in all areas of her life. She has worked tirelessly for the best possible outcome for herself, her family, and her patients—and has always gone the “extra mile” to obtain care for her patients.
Mr. Harvey was extremely proud of his daughter when she received the Oley Foundation’s Nan Couts Award in 2015. It showed him that she has lived up to his high standards of always doing your best for everyone you’re caring for. It was especially significant since the Oley Foundation is known for empowering patients to do the best that they can, living their lives to the fullest.
We are grateful for Dr. Banchik’s gifts to the Oley community—particularly for the quality care her father inspired her to give to nutrition support patients.
