WUWM's holiday series Life's Voices begins this year with a profile of Steve Paradowski.
He's a professional chef who's on disability after a stroke.
Yet he still cooks a couple of times a week for Kathy's House. It's a place that provides lodging to people who live out of town who travel to Milwaukee area hospitals for outpatient treatment.
Paradowski watches the sale papers for deals. Then he shops for the ingredients for his Kathy's House meals, storing them in his apartment near Mitchell International Airport.
