St. Joseph Hospital of Orange
Honoring Shirley Moretti’s Commitment to St. Joseph Hospital and
World-Class Cancer Care
Shirley Moretti has a strong commitment to St. Joseph Hospital and to helping
others. Immediately after recuperating from breast cancer surgery and
follow-up treatments, Shirley volunteered to assist newly diagnosed patients
through their cancer journey, including supporting her two sisters.
Her interest in helping breast cancer patients led to her involvement with
the Cordelia Knott Wellness Foundation. As president, she later directed
the merger between this organization and the St. Joseph Hospital Foundation.
This merger created the opportunity for a much-desired appearance center
and boutique in The Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment, now called
Ginny’s Shop. Shirley was involved in every aspect of the design
of Ginny’s Shop and continues to work there as a volunteer, giving
hope to many as she shares her own cancer experiences.
Shirley joined the St. Joseph Hospital Foundation Board in 2012. In 2014
she was named the Spirit of St. Joseph Award Honoree in recognition of
her outstanding contributions of time, talent and treasure. Her relationships
with other individuals and organizations have resulted in additional support
for cancer services.
Currently serving as Co-Chair of the
Innovating for a Healthier Community Campaign, Shirley always leads by example. In addition to establishing
a charitable remainder trust (CRT) with St. Joseph Hospital as the beneficiary,
Shirley has recently made an extraordinary planned gift by signing an
irrevocable estate pledge to establish the Shirley J. Moretti Nurse Navigator
Endowment and to make a sizeable donation to the Emergency Care Center.
The Nurse Navigator Program offers patients and their families the valuable
resources they need to not only navigate through the healthcare journey,
but calm the mind, strengthen the spirit and concentrate on what matters
most — healing.
Like St. Joseph, Shirley is a protector and benefactor to the many people
she encounters. She is a humble and quiet leader, supporter and friend,
but Shirley lets her energy and passion speak on her behalf.
St. Joseph Hospital Foundation is honored that Shirley has shared her legacy
with others. Her generous gifts and efforts will provide life-saving cancer
services for years to come.
Thank you, Shirley!
Santa Claus in Disguise
On December 22, days before Christmas, St. Joseph Hospital Foundation was
visited by Santa Claus in disguise. Vice President Jeff Luzar and Sales
and Marketing Manager Davis Koleas from GuardTop, LLC stopped by the St.
Joseph Hospital Foundation with eight large boxes filled with children’s
toys to be used for The Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment’s
Spencer’s Toy Chest. Jeff and David filled the back of their truck
and made two trips in order to transport the abundant amount of toys.
Jeff explained that the employees of GuardTop, LLC wanted to do something
meaningful around the holidays that would benefit children. The company
pulled together all 25 employees and jointly contributed enough toys to
refill Spencer’s Toy Chest. These toys will be enjoyed by pediatric
patients who receive cancer care at St. Joseph Hospital. Children are
rewarded with a new toy of their choosing after completion of their radiation
therapy session. This year, Santa did not come in a red suit, but in the
kindness of GuardTop, LLC’s employees.
St. Joseph Hospital Foundation truly appreciates the generosity of GuardTop,
LLC in their efforts to help our pediatric cancer patients with their
cancer care and in their healing experience.
A Grateful Family...
Helen and twin sister, Hannah Truong, came to the Foundation office on
January 30 and presented a memorial gift in memory of their father, Si
Lang Truong, who passed away a year ago at St. Joseph Hospital. Visiting
from Germany, he was in town to see his family in Orange County. He became
ill and sadly was hospitalized for a few weeks and passed. The family
was deeply touched by all the care given to them and their father and
wanted to convey their gratitude. Helen and Hannah, and their eight siblings
around the world all contributed to make a generous donation as a family
in memory of their father.
Dear Doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers,
We feel so blessed that our father was in your loving care during his final
moments last January 2018. We all feel so blessed that we were able to
be with him during his passing. You gave us strength, hope and comfort,
which has brought us peace and harmony as a family.
Our loving thanks to each of you who cared for our father!
May God bless you all!
The Truong Family
