B&B Plumbing, Inc. Continues Their Support of
St. Joseph Hospital and it's Vital Programs

"One drop at a time, or one dollar at a time expands to serve many." shares Elaine John. "Most likely we will never meet the child, mother, or grandparent that received the gift of healing or life." It is with this fait that Bill and Elaine John, founders of B&B Plumbing, Inc. in Anaheim began the tradition and dedication of supporting St. Joseph Hospital back in the early 1990's.

While B&B Plumbing, Inc. has seen many changes and endured many challenges over the years, the unwavering support for health care in our community is the legacy they want to have, now and into the future. "B&B Plumbing, Inc. will continue providing support for prevention, early detection, diagnosis as well as treatment in hopes that it will help make the world of health care a better place."

To learn how businesses can provide support to St. Joseph Hospital, please contact the Foundation at 714-347-7900 or email foundation@stjoe.org.

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 foundation@stjoe.org.

Cancer Services a Priority for Tanja Cebula

Tanja Cebula, a 17 year breast cancer survivor, member of the Foundation Board, grateful patient, and hospital supporter recently gifted $30,000 to Cancer Services at The Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment. "We are blessed to have St. Joseph Hospital in our community. Everyone who goes through cancer wants the best doctors, best care, best technology, and best facilities. And we have that in our backyard!" shared Tanja.

Tanja has co-chaired the Circles of Life Fashion Show event as well as modeled in the show. She is committed to helping educate others on the power of early cancer detection which can increase the rate of survival. "Cancer can make you feel like you've lost control of your life but the caregivers at St. Joseph Hospital are compassionate and walk this journey with all of their patients."

Cancer Services is a priority of the hospital's Innovating for a Healthier Community comprehensive campaign. To learn more about how gifts like Tanya's make an impact, please contact the Foundation at 714-347-7900 or email foundation@stjoe.org.

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. Joseph Hospital.

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 at 714-347-7900 or visit www.sjogift.org.
