Our Founder's Story

Lloyd first witnessed the power of hospice while serving as the best man for his brother, who married the love of his life surrounded by family members in the bedroom of a dying family member. Hospice made this beautiful moment possible and now, more than two decades later, he is still inspired by this moment and the promise of living fully in the face of an advanced illness. Lloyd launched Sonder in order to elevate how we support those facing advanced illnesses. 

Sonder is inspired by: the pursuit of providing a human-centered service in our hometown of Austin, TX, and Reimagine End of Life Movement, and Atul Gawande’s, “Being Mortal”. Sonder’s vision is to improve the quality of life in our community by reducing anxiety and suffering caused by advanced illness and inspiring each other to live fully.
