About "We Wish You Well"
The song, "We Wish You Well," which Herb Strauss sang for many years at the
Lauri Strauss Leukemia Foundation benefit concerts, is now being put to use by
the Music Therapy Department at Beth Israel Medical Center.

The song, by LSLF Medical Board Member Eugene Goldberg and LSLF Board
Member Peter Haas, "went public" in February when cabaret and jazz singer
Karen Oberlin sang it in her three-evening engagement at Manhattan's
Metropolitan Room. A member of the audience, who works in Beth Israel's
cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation program, asked to use the number at the
hospital. It is now one of the songs that patients sing as they strengthen their
heart and breathing functions through the program. The sessions are funded
through a grant by the Louis & Lucille Armstrong Foundation.
