Providence Mission Hospital loyal supporter, Cathy Hubbell
Cathy and Richard Hubbell support advanced cancer treatment technology
Patients at Providence Mission Hospital’s Leonard Cancer Institute now have access to the latest technology to treat a wide range of cancers, including breast cancer and brain tumors. Thanks to the remarkable generosity of longtime donors Cathy and Richard Hubbell, the hospital’s newest healing tool is the Xoft® IORT Axxent® Electronic Brachytherapy System®.
The innovative Xoft IORT System brings the radiation source close to the targeted tissue. The radiation dose is then directed to the size and shape of the cancerous area, sparing healthy tissues and organs — and allowing for a more precise, simplified and personalized approach to cancer treatment.
The hospital’s new brachytherapy system includes intraoperative radiation therapy breast applicators, which deliver a complete, concentrated dose of radiation in a single treatment during surgery. The revolutionary approach reduces the need for weeks of daily radiation through traditional external beam radiation therapy.
A history of generosity
Cathy and Richard Hubbell, who have both been treated at the hospital in years past, have expressed their gratitude through their enthusiastic support in many ways.
For two decades, the Hubbell Family has backed a long list of Providence Mission Hospital initiatives, including improvements to our emergency department and the construction of the Leonard Cancer Institute. In addition, the Hubbells recently donated 35 transport chairs to ease the way for our volunteers who are transporting patients.
Cathy is not only a generous philanthropist but also a tireless ambassador for the hospital, as well as a volunteer who has served with us since 2003. Both Cathy and Richard are passionate about ensuring Providence Mission Hospital can provide world-class care, including the most advanced technology, to all citizens of south Orange County.
“The Foundation and entire Providence Mission Hospital family have been graciously blessed with Cathy and Richard’s compassionate generosity for many years,” says John D. Miller, chief philanthropy officer. “Their legacy has impacted thousands of lives and will live on throughout the hospital.”
Together, we can provide care that transforms lives, now and for years to come.
