Linear Accelerator Grant from Guenther
Many thanks to the Henry L. Guenther Foundation whose $2 million grant
has provided us with an exceptional start towards raising the $4.5 million
dollars needed to purchase and install a new Varian TrueBeam® Linear
Accelerator. This new machine and its leading-edge technology will help
us achieve better treatment outcomes for both adult and children, improve
safety, improve patient comfort, and lower treatment costs.
The advances of the TrueBeam allow for superior tumor destruction, utilizing
higher doses of radiation, while reducing impact on the healthy tissue
surrounding the tumor. This new method will also help to reduce the number
of treatments a patient may need - in some cases from around 40 down to five.
The new system also tracks tumor movement such as patient's breathing.
If the tumor moves out of the beam's field, the beam automatically
shuts off to prevent irradiation of healthy tissues.
To learn more about the Linear Accelerator please contact the Foundation
at 714-347-7900 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Cancer Services a Priority for Tanja Cebula
Tanja Cebula, a 17 year breast cancer survivor, member of the Foundation

Ron and Carol Thon Make a Generous Gift Through
an Irrevocable Charitable Remainder Unitrust
As a new member of the Foundation Board, Ron Thon wanted to make a gift
to the hospital and take advantage of a matching gift opportunity.
A few years ago, Ron and Carol Thon created a Charitable Remainder Unitrust
(CRUT). The CRUT was funded with appreciated property. This strategy allowed
them to sell the appreciated property in the Trust without incurring capital
gains tax and at the same time receive a charitable income tax deduction.
The Thons will receive income from the Trust for the rest of their lives.
Upon their passing, the assets in the Trust will be distributed to St.
Some Charitable Remainder Trusts allow for the donor to change the charitable
beneficiary at any time. The Thons changed their Trust by making a portion
of the Trust irrevocable to St. Joseph Hospital Foundation. With this
change, the gift could be counted as a current donation and be doubled
with the matching gift.
For more information on how estate and gift planning can support and sustain
St. Joseph Hospital's vital programs, please contact the Foundation
