Norristown, PA, June 25, 2018– High Swartz partner and chair of the firm’s Family Law practice, Mary Cushing Doherty, was recently awarded the prestigious honor of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Woman of the Year for the Philadelphia area.
Mary’s team, “For the Love of Jim – Hope for a Cure,” was in memory of her husband of 34 years, Jim Doherty, father to their 4 children: Colleen, Maggie, John and deceased son, Tommy. Her team raised over $120,000 for LLS. Jim succumbed to Non-Hodgkins lymphoma, double-hit (or twice mutated) in 2012, 13 months after his diagnosis. He was a chemist who believed science would find a cure, and Mary has taken up this cause in his honor.
