The Bucket List Project

Organization:

The Bucket List ProjectThe Bucket List Project (BLP) is a final wish fulfillment program for adults with life-limiting illnesses and limited resources. Long Beach Memorial Palliative Care Program realizes the need and benefit to support our patients by maximizing the quality of their lives through this program.
           
Creating a bucket list is a life exercise which allows patients to consider how they would like to spend the remainder of their life. The goal is for the BLP to fulfill some of those experiences and create lasting memories with the people they love.

Kenny KozikowskiLong Beach resident Kenny Kozikowski, 48, who was diagnosed with metastatic (Stage 4) colorectal cancer in December 2011, was the first recipient of this program. Kenny’s bucket list started the project, but one of his wishes was to create a lasting legacy and help all patients in the Palliative Care Program at Long Beach Memorial fulfill their bucket lists. Kenny truly made an impression on everyone he came in contact with and for that reason The Bucket List Project was created to honor his memory and to help others in a similar situation.
