Mission Hospital Foundation Recognizes Vision Award Recipients
Residents of Coto de Caza and Mission Viejo, these recipients are an extraordinary expression of Mission’s values of Compassion, Dignity, Justice, Excellence and Integrity.
Mission Viejo, CA – Each year Mission Hospital Foundation recognizes an individual or group who has served to uphold the foundation’s mission and vision with the highest distinction. We present this individual or group with the prestigious Sr. Martha Ann Fitzpatrick Vision Award. We are honored to announce that we have three recipients this year: Toni and Ronnie Andrews and Mary Miyamoto.
Residents of Coto de Caza, Toni and Ronnie have been cherished members of the Mission Hospital family since 2007. Incredibly dedicated and passionate about supporting Mission Hospital, they have shared their time, talents and treasures in various capacities — individually and as a family.
Toni currently serves on the Foundation Board of Directors and the Task Force for the Judi and Bill Leonard Institute for Cancer Prevention, Treatment and Wellness. For multiple years she also served as a co-chair for the Holiday Gala, raising record-breaking funds in support of mental health and wellness, as well as, cancer prevention, treatment and wellness.
Ronnie is a former member of the Foundation Board of Directors and is a pivotal member of the Cancer Advisory Board, which is helping to create a comprehensive vision for the new Judi and Bill Leonard Institute for Cancer Prevention, Treatment and Wellness. Ronnie and Toni have extensive community connections and they regularly inspire new people to serve as ambassadors and join our fundraising efforts. Toni and Ronnie are a dynamic duo and Mission has been blessed by their engagement.
Mary is a remarkable example of the values of Mission Hospital, as well as the humble spirit that is Sister Martha Ann Fitzpatrick. This fall marks the tenth anniversary of Mary’s engagement with Mission. She is a devoted member of the Valiant Women Board of Directors and has served as the chair of the THINK PINK Breast Health Wall of Honor since 2013. A breast cancer survivor, Mary is also a grateful Mission Hospital patient.
Mary leads with grace and confidence and has formed a true partnership with the foundation team, working tirelessly to expand fundraising efforts, community education and vendor partnerships. She is as dedicated to educating women about the importance of early detection as she is about raising funds to support the underserved.
Toni, Ronnie and Mary have touched so many lives through their devotion to others and the health of our community. We are all so blessed by their remarkable Spirit of Giving. Sister Martha Ann Fitzpatrick will formally honor them at the Philanthropist Circle Dinner in May.
