Giving Opportunities

The community's support of St. Jude Medical Center brings life-saving advances that are unmatched in the state of California. We are thankful for those committed to ensuring the presence of world-class care in their own backyard. Through philanthropy, St. Jude can combine the strengths of academic medicine– access to clinical trials, the latest therapeutic breakthroughs and a network of subspecialists –with services of the highest quality that are close to home, efficient, and seamlessly cover the full continuum of care.

3D Mammography (Digital Tomosynthesis)

St. Jude has embarked on a $4.1 million initiative to bring the latest technology in breast cancer detection to its Kathryn T. McCarty Breast Center. 3D mammography (or digital tomosynthesis) is today’s most advanced breast imaging equipment. The cutting-edge technology allows radiologists to examine fine details in breast tissue like never before—a benefit for all women, but especially for those with dense breast tissue. The improvement in visualization is a tremendous advantage in detecting cancer in its earliest stages. Help us reach our goal to acquire six life-saving 3D mammography units, and give the 30,000 women who are screened each year the greatest chances for successful treatment and survival.

St. Jude Crosson Cancer Institute

The Cancer Institute provides the newest diagnostic procedures and therapies, ongoing clinical trials and the latest breakthroughs in biotherapy, chemotherapy and immunology. By combining highly trained specialists with a commitment to excellence, patient outcomes exceed the state and the nation’s overall cancer survival rates. Your support will help St. Jude continue to enhance and expand the Cancer Institute’s programs and services and bring new innovative treatments and technology, keeping us at the forefront of advances in cancer care.

St. Jude Neurosciences Institute

The Neurosciences Institute provides exceptional care for those suffering from a host of neurological conditions and injuries—from stroke to spinal injuries. As an Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center, St. Jude delivers the finest personalized stroke care and partners with the community to provide extensive education in prevention and awareness.

With the generosity of our donors, we have been able to purchase advanced technology such as a neuro biplane and a cutting-edge surgery suite with intraoperative MRI, to achieve this elite designation. Your support will help us give every patient who comes to the St. Jude Neurosciences Institute the most advanced, comprehensive neurological care possible.

Community Benefit Program/Care for the Poor Program

Everyone, regardless of income level, deserves the opportunity to live a long and healthy life. Through its Community Benefit Program, St. Jude increases medical access and prevention services to the most vulnerable in our community, with a special focus on those living in poverty. Philanthropy enables St. Jude to expand these vitally needed services, such as free or discounted medical, dental and behavioral health visits for the uninsured/underinsured; senior services; obesity prevention and healthy lifestyles programs for youth and families; and programs that address homelessness. Your support will help promote healthier futures for all residents in North Orange County.

Palliative Care

Palliative care optimizes the quality of life for patients enduring serious or incurable diseases, as well as providing comforting support for their families. With skill and empathy, the St. Jude palliative care team guides patients to additional services provided through St. Jude, help set goals for their care now and in the future, as well as referring the appropriate specialists for supplemental care, including spiritual guidance, psychological counseling and high-quality alternative medicine. Your philanthropic support will assist St. Jude in strengthening and expanding our Palliative Care services.
