Dr. Lara Hanlon has received the “Hero of Compassion Award”!


We’re excited to announce that our very own Dr. Lara Hanlon received the “Hero of Compassion Award” from from the TEARS Foundation on Saturday, October 13, 2018!

“This is an incredible honor.  If I could pick one thing to be recognized for in my career, this would be it.  By far, many of the closest bonds I have with my patients are the women and couples who have experienced a devastating loss.  These are the people who I will never forget.  To my patients who are here today, know I am always in awe of your strength.  To help you get through the pain, and then, more often than not, find happiness in the future, is the ultimate joy in my career.  Thank you for letting me into your lives and putting your trust in me.  It is truly a privilege.  You have all touched my soul and will always have a place in my heart.”

-Dr. Lara Hanlon

From everyone at Bedford Commons OB-GYN, congratulations Dr. Hanlon! 


More About The TEARS Foundation

The TEARS Foundation seeks to compassionately lift a financial burden from families who have lost a child by providing funds to assist with the cost of burial or cremation services. We believe that every child’s life deserves to be honored and memorialized in accordance with the grieving parents’ wishes and are committed to helping bereaved parents with this experience. Every grieving parent deserves access to ongoing bereavement support, so we also offer parents comprehensive bereavement care in the form of grief support groups and peer companions.  For more information or to donate to the TEARS Foundation, click here.
