❝ From the outset, community leaders established Mary Bird Perkins to provide local access to the best possible cancer care, regardless of ability to pay. Today, with a network of five locations across southeast Louisiana, and with the help of many dedicated supporters, we have been able to further the vision to provide the most advanced cancer care close to home where patients live and work. ❞ – Jerry Jolly, Chair

A Message from President & ceo Todd D. Stevens This past year was one of incredible accomplishment and evolution in Mary Bird Perkins’ ongoing fight against cancer. Building Mary Bird Perkins’ mission across southeast Louisiana is a result of collaboration with physicians, hospitals, and community organizations that recognize the value of Mary Bird’s programs and services and excellence in cancer care. Continued expansion has taken this organization from a state-of-the-art radiation treatment center to a dynamic cancer care organization. From expanded outreach and record-breaking early detection programs to innovative research and cutting edge treatment technologies, we made many inroads in battling this disease. These efforts reflect the desire of communities that want to see advanced cancer treatment and services available to more patients close to home. According to the National Cancer Institute, there are now 12 million cancer survivors in the United States – more than at any other time in U.S. history. That momentum toward a cure must continue, and we are doing our part. We are working to build Mary Bird Perkins’ mission on a strong foundation so we can do even more to help cancer patients – more leading-edge treatment options, more prevention and education, more early detection, more outreach, more research, more clinical trials, and more enhanced cancer services in more communities. We need everyone’s help to go where the need is. Community support has and will always make the difference. Thank you for supporting the mission and for the important role you played in keeping Mary Bird Perkins at the forefront of cancer care in 2010. Countless lives have been touched because of your unwavering commitment to beating this disease. Sincerely,

Todd D. Stevens Todd D. Stevens



Physicians and Partners Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center began as a state-of-the-art radiation therapy treatment center more than 40 years ago. It was then community leaders had a vision that cancer patients should have access to leading-edge radiation therapy close to home. Today, Mary Bird Perkins has evolved into a dynamic cancer care organization that partners with physicians and hospitals to provide comprehensive cancer care. Recognized for the excellence of its treatment team, the strength of its partnerships and its patient and community focused programs, Mary Bird Perkins now has five locations serving 18 parishes across southeast Louisiana.

Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center is grateful to its many partners… Baton Rouge

We are grateful for our partners across the region working with us to provide exceptional cancer care close to home, family and friends – just as the founders intended. And while the Center has expanded over the years, its expertise in radiation oncology has remained at the forefront. The expert radiation oncologists practicing across the Mary Bird Perkins service area have unparalleled skill and experience.

Expert Treatment Compassionate Care Early Detection Research Education BUILDING OUR MISSION


expert treatment Faster Treatment Option Darrell Tate was the first patient at Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center in Baton Rouge to benefit from the Elekta Infinity’s VMAT (Volumetric Intensity Modulated Arc Therapy) technology to treat his prostate cancer. “This is an exciting new treatment option that promises to significantly improve our patients’ experience and quality of care,” said Dr. Maurice King, medical director, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center. “The patient gets the same amount of radiation in about 80-90 percent less time.”

COVINGTON New Facilities — Expanded Technology & Programs Construction of the new Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center in Covington (shown above) on the campus of our partner, St. Tammany Parish Hospital, was a major 2010 project, and radiation therapy operations moved into the new facility in early 2011. We look forward to expanding the comprehensive nature of our partnership to help provide enhanced cancer care to the residents on the Northshore. Building plans for the new Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC in Houma (shown below) took shape in 2010. The Center is scheduled to open in the fall of 2011. This new state-of-the-art facility will house comprehensive cancer services and programs, providing seamless patient care in the Bayou Region.




Treated Close to My Home It came as quite a shock to 56-year-old Melody Christy when her mammogram was abnormal. She made sure to get one every year and there had never been a problem. “I was so frightened. No one in my family has ever had breast cancer,” she said. “I live in Gonzales and I remember reading at one point in the paper that Mary Bird Perkins was coming here, but I never thought I would need it.” Since Christy also works full-time in Gonzales, having to go to Baton Rouge for six weeks of treatment would have been a hardship for this single working woman. “It was like a miracle to me that the Gonzales Center was there. I would go for treatments before work, or if I had the early shift, I would go on my lunch hour and then go back to work. It was close to my home so it was perfect. The staff was absolutely awesome. They put me at ease and took the time to explain everything that was going to happen. They made me feel like I was the only patient there.”

Compassionate Care Always By My Side Originally from Georgia, 75-year-old John Moore spent 23 years of his life in the U. S. Army. He served as a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War before retiring. A fellow pilot told Moore about a helicopter company that was hiring in case Moore wasn’t quite ready for the rocking chair. Moore checked it out, working off shore for a while, and ultimately secured a position with the company in Thibodaux. He and his wife Libbi bought a house in Houma in 1976. “There weren’t a lot of houses available at that time,” Moore said. “But we found one, and a lot of good friends at the same time.” After some routine blood work in 2004, doctors discovered that Moore had chronic lymphocytic leukemia, a cancer of the white blood cells. “That went into remission in 2006,” Moore said, “and then in December 2009, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.” Moore and his wife once again put John’s life in the hands of Dr. Raul Doria, a medical oncologist with Mary Bird Perkins at TGMC. Dr. Doria treated Moore the first time he was diagnosed. “Both my wife and I were so impressed with him from the very beginning. He said the treatment wouldn’t be easy, but that Hodgkin’s lymphoma (a cancer of the lymph nodes) is considered one of the most curable forms of cancer.” In 2010, between surgery, chemotherapy with Dr. Doria and radiation with Dr. Long – the Moores finally heard the words they had been waiting to hear. Moore was in remission and that meant he and Libbi could go on the upcoming cruise they had been planning. “We want to do things while we can, before we can’t,” is the couple’s mantra. “I think the entire staff at Mary Bird Perkins at TGMC has worked with me at one point or another and they are all upbeat about everything,” Moore said. “You feel just like you’re at home. They made me feel good, always leaving me with the feeling that it was going to get better every day.”

Early Detection Catching Breast Cancer Earlier Findings from a 2010 review of our free cancer screening programs, conducted by the LSU School of Public Health, confirmed our early detection collaboration efforts are working. One example showed that from 2004 to 2009, late stage diagnosis for breast cancer screening participants dropped from 71 percent to 38 percent. This means fewer late-stage breast cancers were detected in 2009 versus 2004 indicating these programs resulted in catching the disease earlier – when likelihood of a positive outcome is highest.

Screening Event Attracts Hundreds The Cancer Program of Our Lady of the Lake and Mary Bird Perkins hosted its third annual Minority Cancer Awareness event, screening nearly 500 people for cancer in one day. Of the participants, 67 percent had never been screened before. Southern University’s School of Nursing, Woman’s Hospital, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, YWCA Encore Plus and numerous volunteers helped make this event a success.

Breaking the Screening Record

The Early Bird Mobile Medical Clinic, which provides free screening and services across 18 parishes. 10


It was a record-breaking year for early detection efforts. With our partners, we provided 248 free cancer screening events across southeast Louisiana – reaching 6,785 people. Fortyfive percent of those screened had never been screened before, and 53 participants were diagnosed with cancer. We have screened more than 36,000 people for cancer from 2002 through 2010.

Screenings Brought to My Work Priscilla Lugo lives in Hammond but works in another town four days a week, 10 hours a day. That leaves little time for life’s other necessities. “I try to have a mammogram every year because breast cancer runs in my family. My sister had breast cancer five years ago,” explained the 55-year-old Lugo. She said she was relieved to find out Mary Bird Perkins’ “screening truck” was going to be at her workplace in Independence, La. “My co-workers told me about it, and I went during my lunch time. Since we work so much, it’s hard to take time off, even though I know cancer screenings are important. You might feel like you’re healthy, but you never know.” She added, “It’s a great service for the community – especially since it’s free for people without insurance.” She also said having someone present who could speak Spanish was a good thing. “English is not a problem for me,” she said, “but having someone there who could speak both languages made a lot of women feel much more at ease.”

research Developed Skin Cancer Technique As a result of research by Mary Bird Perkins medical physicists, a new treatment technique called Bolus Electron Conformal Therapy (BolusECT™) now offers improved treatments for complex cancers of the skin, or just below the skin.

Progress Notes

“Specific tumors can be treated very well with this technology, especially skin cancer of the head and neck.”

In six years, the Mary Bird Perkins-LSU Partnership has:

The Mary Bird Perkins-LSU Partnership Enhancing Radiation Therapy Technology

Conducting Radiation and Proton Therapy Initiatives

Elekta Limited and Mary Bird Perkins agreed to a 3-year, $450,000 research agreement directed at further enhancing the utility of the Elekta radiotherapy treatment systems. The three areas of research, which include electron therapy, volumetric modulated arc therapy and imageguided radiotherapy, are aimed at developing new delivery technology and assessing accuracy of current treatment technology.

The U.S. Department of Defense awarded Mary Bird Perkins a $2.2 million research contract to conduct two important radiation research initiatives. In one initiative, Mary Bird Perkins will collaborate with LSU scientists to explore targeting radiation at individual cancer cells. The second research initiative will be Mary Bird Perkins’ first major effort in proton therapy research and will seek to expand proton therapy to more cancers.



Clinical Trial Saved My Life Jack Wilson won his personal fight with throat cancer, but as a clinical trial participant his treatment plan may help countless others beat the disease in the future. Clinical trials are research studies in which people help doctors find ways to improve cancer care. Through Jack’s participation in a clinical trial, he received one of the newest combinations of treatments. His experience has been documented and may become a standard in treating throat cancer. Jack says participating in the trial was clearly the right choice for him.“I knew everything the trial entailed prior to starting treatment, and I could get this care close to home. I was aware this trial could help save my life, but the fact that others could benefit made my decision to participate even easier.” Staff members closely monitored Jack’s health throughout his treatment. He came to know the staff as more than just his cancer care team. “I leaned on them during a time when I really needed their support. They weren’t just my doctors and nurses— we became like family.”

Education Residency Training for Next Generation of Medical Physicists

Empowering Survivors Educating survivors on the next phase of their journey – Survivorship – is a very important part of cancer care and now a national best practice. To provide this critical service, we launched a Survivorship Program and also hired a full time Survivorship Navigator to help patients actively participate in their care and access important resources. As part of this program, Mary Bird Perkins held its first Survivors’ Day Celebration in June. More than 200 cancer survivors, current patients and employees gathered at all five centers to celebrate the day by sharing a picnic lunch served by the Centers’ staff and volunteers.

Held 14

Mary Bird Perkins is the first center in Louisiana to establish a residency training program in radiation oncology physics, helping to provide qualified professionals to the workforce and benefiting patient care. It is aimed at taking graduates from CAMPEPaccredited graduate medical physics programs, like the one Mary Bird Perkins has with LSU, and providing two years of clinical training in the specialty of radiation oncology physics – just as physicians are required to do residency training following medical school. A grant from the American Society for Radiation Oncology helped with program startup.

Learning to Quit The Cancer Program of Our Lady of the Lake and Mary Bird Perkins’ patients and family members can receive free one-on-one tobacco cessation counseling at the bedside while hospitalized at Our Lady of the Lake or onsite at Mary Bird Perkins. Sessions are led by a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist who guides patients through the process of quitting. Data shows that 65% of patients enrolled in this program have quit smoking.

124 educational events, reaching more than 12,000 people.


Classes Helped Me Quit Kathy Lavigne started smoking when she was 18. “By the time I tried to quit, which I did many times, I was addicted.” The decision to go with a friend to a free smoking cessation class in Covington sponsored by Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center changed her life. “The class was so different that it broke my tie to smoking completely,” Lavigne said. She explained that the class met once a week for six weeks and the members became very close, forming a true support group for one another. Additionally, participants were given a discount coupon for a smoking cessation medication that Lavigne said was a help both financially and physically for helping with the withdrawal symptoms. “We were also given a ‘quit-keeper’ to keep track of how many days we had not had a cigarette. My son would yell out the number every day,” she laughed. “We were encouraged to find a hobby. I took up knitting. I think I knitted enough scarves to keep the whole world warm,” she joked. “I quit two years ago on Valentine’s Day. I have been given one of the greatest gifts – being smoke-free and loving it.”

NCI Community Cancer centers Program Year Three in Summary In addition to English, screening and clinical trials information is now translated into Spanish and Vietnamese languages to ensure clear communication within these populations.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Community Cancer Centers Program (NCCCP) ended its third year by implementing programs to advance clinical research and create a model for community cancer care—with an emphasis on underserved minorities, including poor, rural, racial and ethnic populations.

Our Cancer Program data shows that 58% of all patients screened were minorities with 46% African American, 4% Asian American, and 7.5% Hispanic Americans. Also, 8% of those screened were over age 65, and 25% of all patients screened had never been screened before.

ARRA Funds Advance NCI Initiatives NCI is using $80 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to develop programs at 30 competitively chosen sites in 22 states across the nation. Two million dollars from ARRA will fund 14 new projects over the next two years for The Cancer Program of Our Lady of the Lake and Mary Bird Perkins, a NCCCP site since 2007.


Reduce Cancer Healthcare Disparities Our patient navigators continue to bridge the gap for many underserved minorities when an abnormal cancer screening result occurs. From the time the patient navigator becomes aware of a patient’s abnormal finding, they guide the patient through every step of the diagnosis process, whether it’s scheduling appointments, addressing financial or transportation challenges or finding a doctor who can provide specialized care. Our patient navigators’ primary goal is to remove any obstacle that could prevent a patient from receiving the immediate care they require.


Improve Quality of Cancer Care Multidisciplinary care teams for colorectal, head and neck and brain cancers have been created. These teams provide enhanced physician collaboration, delivering the most seamless, comprehensive care possible for patients.

Key Accomplishments by Focus Area ●●

Cancer Program volunteers and staff canvassed neighborhoods to promote prostate cancer screenings.

We have enhanced our genetic counseling and testing program to provide important information to patients and their families about their risk of cancer, and a board certified geneticist is a member of our multidisciplinary teams. ●●

Enhance Survivorship and Palliative Care Programs We have developed a breast cancer patient treatment summary and survivorship care plan to provide patients and their primary care physicians with important records of the treatment they received, including a detailed


post-treatment follow-up plan created by best practice experiences. Our care plan also includes a Survivorship Navigator who will help patients transition to this new phase of their journey. ●●

Enhance Information Technology Capabilities by Converting Paper-based Patient Records to Electronic Health Records Cohesive and comprehensive cancer care is only possible through the use of electronic medical records. During this past year, our Cancer Program has reached new levels in developing secure information technology systems for sharing patient health records with other providers.


Physician Outreach Program The Cancer Program launched a Physician Outreach Program to increase primary care physicians’ awareness of national clinical trials that are available in their local community. Physician Outreach Stats

52% of outreach population is defined as rural 37% of outreach population is African American, Hispanic or Asian

17% of outreach population is considered minority based on additional NCCCP factors (age, education level, income, language, uninsured)

The Cancer Program held its third annual event in recognition of National Minority Cancer Awareness Week to promote the importance of early detection of cancer among racial/ethnic minority groups. This year’s event resulted in nearly 500 cancer screenings in one day for colorectal, skin, oral, prostate and breast cancers and 185 blood pressure and glucose screenings.

To date, 35 physician clinics have been visited; 27 located in rural communities NCCCP Year 3 Clinical Trials Accruals:

26% African American 50% Elderly 57% Rural ●●

Standardize Biospecimen Collection for Research Through a Standards-Based Approach The Cancer Program continues to partner with the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute to perform state-of-the-art cancer research called Total Cancer CareTM (TCC). By combining research efforts, we are creating a new frontier in cancer research that will potentially offer personalized cancer treatment to all patients. More than 700 patients to date have been enrolled. We continue to work with our TCC clinical partners: LSU Minority-Based CCOP, Wake Forest University, Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center and Moffitt Cancer Center. Together, we have developed clinical trial workgroups to identify the trials best suited to our patients for gastrointestinal and head and neck cancers.

Outreach Coordinators The Cancer Program of our Lady of the Lake and Mary Bird Perkins, through its participation in the National Cancer Institute Community Cancer Centers Program, recently added Vietnamese and Hispanic outreach coordinators to educate these populations on early detection.

“There is a tremendous need for cancer education in the Vietnamese population. It’s really a privilege to be the connection to cancer resources for my community,” Maggie said. Discussing health issues is difficult for many people. But, for Vietnamese Americans—especially the women, who are very modest— talking about their body with a doctor can be especially hard. Maggie said it’s during these situations when she can earn trust and help the most. In addition to verbally translating at screenings, Maggie translates printed information produced by The Cancer Program. Maggie is also anxious to begin educating Vietnamese patients on cancer clinical trials.

Maggie Tran, Vietnamese Outreach Coordinator



“It’s easy to feel isolated when you don’t speak English and there aren’t many other health providers that are outreaching to the Hispanic community. They appreciate that we want to help keep them healthy; it makes them feel good that we genuinely care. I give them the facts,” Grace said. Like many people, some in the Hispanic community believe cancer could never happen to them. When Grace is out in the community or working at a screening, Hispanics often express their appreciation that the Cancer Program aggressively reaches out to them.

Grace Espinosa, Hispanic Outreach Coordinator

Lively entertainment, a touching program and energetic supporters made the inaugural Close to Home Summer Gala an evening to remember.

Stevie and LeLe Keller, young Baton Rouge philanthropists, hosted their second annual “DISCOver a Cure” charity dance for approximately 350 7th and 8th graders on August 5, 2010. Together with their friends, Stevie and LeLe were able to donate $8,800 to Mary Bird Perkins.

The Sixth Annual Jeff Boss Memorial Classic Golf Tournament, held May 15, 2010 at Copper Mill Golf Club, was a tremendous success. Tournament organizers Ashley and Greg Stringfellow presented MBP with a check for $5,000. Since its inception, the Jeff Boss Memorial Classic has invested more than $29,000 toward the fight against cancer.

Our Commitment to the Mission “Every year we are moved to support Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center for numerous reasons,” explained Bill and René Firesheets. “Few people can escape being directly affected by cancer. We have family, friends and colleagues who have received treatment at Mary Bird Perkins,” said Bill. The Firesheets believe that for patients and their families to be able to receive world-class treatment locally, rather than in another state, is a huge benefit. “Many don’t know that Mary Bird provides treatment to all who need it, regardless of their ability to pay,” stated René. “This is very important to us.” They also fully support the Center’s commitment to screening, early detection, prevention and education and see it as a tremendous service to the community. The Firesheets also feel that in addition to being a major part of the health care community, “Mary Bird Perkins is a major economic engine in each community it serves.” Together they consider it a privilege and a blessing to have such an excellent cancer treatment center in our community. “We want to help ensure that Mary Bird will be here for our children and grandchildren,” they explained.

❝ As Mary Bird Perkins expands its presence across southeast Louisiana, providing more services than ever before, growing a healthy endowment becomes even more important. As the population grows and medical costs rise, we want to ensure that patients and families have access to the best cancer care possible 400 years from now! Momentum is strong, and we are moving closer to achieving our goal. We must continue to foster interest in supporting Mary Bird Perkins’ needs today, all while ensuring its future, through gifts directed to the Foundation.❞ – Bill Peters, Chair

I Want to Give Back Emily Stich is a 10-year breast cancer survivor. “My treatment included six weeks of radiation at Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center. My experience made me very thankful to have a great job and health insurance. So many people don’t have those resources. Knowing that Mary Bird Perkins doesn’t turn anyone away regardless of ability to pay is very important to me,” Stich said. So much so, in fact, that in her will Stich has stipulated that the Center is to receive a percentage of her estate. “I want to give something back, to support and nurture a caring community. By planning ahead, I can help perpetuate the good work that goes on at Mary Bird Perkins and support its mission of providing care to all who need it.”
