Doctors are committed to saving lives during the COVID-19 crisis. However, they’re struggling to find the equipment they need to carry out the most basic tasks of their job. We’re proud to say that Attorney Dax Bello from our firm and his wife Janine were recently able to contribute to helping this problem.
Earlier this week, Dax found out that the University of Miami was in dire need of personal protective equipment so doctors could see more patients. In the words of Dr. Fred Telischi, Chairman of the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Miami, “If my doctors had more masks, they could save more lives.”
After being informed of Dr. Telischi’s struggle to find protective equipment, Dax donated high-tech masks that he had purchased for his family. While it may seem like a small contribution, Dr. Telischi was thrilled to receive the masks that have become close to impossible to locate for medical professionals.

At Stewart Tilghman Fox Bianchi & Cain, P.A, we’ve been proud to be part of the Miami community from the moment we first opened our doors in 1984.

Now, as the COVID-19 crisis progresses, having a sense of community is more important than ever.
Doctors have had so much difficulty finding the equipment they need that it caused one to describe the situation as being “at war with no ammo.” If you are one of the millions of Americans practicing social distancing and self-isolation, please consider donating any protective masks you have right now. Each moment a doctor has access to the equipment they need is another moment they can spend saving lives. It doesn’t matter how many you have—every mask not being worn by a doctor right now has the potential to save lives.
