In this, our final issue of Innovations before we launch a new magazine later this year, we highlight just how unique the John Wayne Cancer Institute is.
In this issue: Saint John’s Health Center Foundation trustee Chris Newman likes to help others excel.
| Trustee William S. Mortensen is carrying on a family legacy of compassion and generosity in his work with Saint John’s. | Time is of the essence for stroke care, and the Providence Saint John’s Health Center's certified primary stroke center is nearby with cutting-edge technology and world-class doctors.
In this issue we feature women who have long supported the John Wayne Cancer Institute. The story of Alice Johnson McKinney reminds us of the early days of the Institute and the spirit of the man who made our work possible, John Wayne. We profile the late Annick Brunaud, a Saint John’s patient who succumbed to pancreatic cancer last May, and whose support of the Institute continues to advance our understanding of this challenging cancer. And the story of Suzanne Nelson shows us how love, support, courage and outstanding medical care can coalesce to overcome daunting odds.
