Ph y s i c i ans a nd Pa rtne rs A sincere thank you to the following partners
Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center is humbled to work together with so many outstanding partners across the region to provide the most advanced cancer care, close to home. Providing more local access to quality care was the initial vision for Mary Bird Perkins more than 40 years ago, and today that vision holds true. While the Center has expanded over the years, its original expertise in radiation oncology has remained at the forefront. The radiation oncologists practicing across the service area have unparalleled skill and experience. They are an invaluable part of the expertise that has successfully brought Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center to its 40th anniversary celebration. In addition to working with a team of dedicated radiation oncologists, Mary Bird Perkins, through these many partnerships, has the opportunity to work with numerous cancer experts and a wide range of extended medical staff to help patients fight cancer.

2011 Community Report
P r e s i de n t a n d c eo m es s age More than 40 years ago, a handful of passionate community visionaries decided that cancer patients should have access to state-of-the-art radiation therapy close to home. The rest, as they say, is history. These remarkable founders paved the way for what is known today as Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a dynamic cancer care organization serving thousands of people across southeast Louisiana. This organization is very fortunate for the hospital and physician partners across the region that work together with Mary Bird Perkins to provide exceptional cancer care close to home, family and friends, just as the founders intended. They knew from the very start that being able to receive treatment while surrounded by the support of loved ones is critical in the fight against cancer. Everyone associated with Mary Bird Perkins strives to be an extension of that support, with a devotion to providing sincere and exemplary service to all. It is because of long-standing and phenomenal community support that Mary Bird Perkins is thriving today and providing more vital programs and services than ever before. Your continued investment in saving lives and building healthier communities is vitally important. Much is owed to the original founders, but countless people along the way, like you, have sustained its mission.
Increased survivorship and more advances toward a cure are reasons to celebrate the remarkable progress made in the fight against cancer over the past four decades. Also to be celebrated is the commitment made by so many to focus on the future. Mary Bird Perkins is proud to stand with you and never give up until there is no more cancer. Sincerely,
Todd D. Stevens

❝Everything turned out wonderful,” says Bruce Hinkson, Covington Center patient. His treatment plan for prostate cancer required both surgery at St. Tammany Parish Hospital and radiation at Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center. “I had to have eight weeks of radiation treatments. My family wanted me to go to Houston, but I wanted to stay near my home in Bogalusa. I was lucky I could. Everyone at Mary Bird Perkins was lovely. They told me exactly what they were going to do so I knew what to expect. The machine they used to treat me worked out great. I’m cancer free!❞ Bruce Hinkson Cancer Survivor, Covington

Research National Clinical Trial The Cancer Program of Our Lady of the Lake and Mary Bird Perkins is helping to build a community-based research platform through Moffitt Cancer Center’s Total Cancer Care (TCC®) program. As one of 18 sites across the nation participating in TCC, The Cancer Program collects patient data and high-quality tissue samples with the goal of advancing personalized medicine and creating a new frontier in cancer research.
Improving Cancer Treatment The greatest activity of medical physics research in MBPCC history was marked in 2011, funded largely by three national grants – Department of Defense (DOD), Elekta, Inc. and .decimal, Inc. – at an annual rate of $1.33 million. The DOD grant funded two projects that allowed MBPCC and LSU to investigate ways of more precisely targeting cancer cells with radiation. The Elekta grant enabled MBPCC to better utilize imaging and treatment delivery systems for volumetric modulated arc and electron therapies. Finally, the .decimal grant allowed MBPCC to implement a dose calculation model into a commercial product that is now used at more than 100 radiotherapy centers nationwide to design boluses used for electron conformal therapy.

At the conclusion of the evening, Thomas J. “T.J.” Moran announced a gift of $1 million to the Center’s Foundation. Introduced by his nephew, Dr. Tom Kiebach, Moran, a 22-year survivor of throat and lung cancer and former Mary Bird Perkins patient, credited Dr. Robert Fields, radiation oncologist, and the expert staff. “Saving and extending lives is possible at Mary Bird Perkins. I hope my gift helps extend other people's lives,” Moran said.

Because of their dream and determination, and the many volunteers over the years who believed in what they wanted to create, we have been able to remain true to their vision to provide quality cancer care close to home in many communities across southeast Louisiana.❞

Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center has a long history with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization. Over the years, the Komen affiliates in the Baton Rouge, New Orleans and Bayou Region have generously provided grant funding to support free clinical breast exams, breast health education and mammograms for uninsured and underinsured adults. They have also funded support groups and personal items such as wigs, mastectomy bras and prosthetic devices for cancer patients.
Gheens Foundation Edwin and Mary Jo Gheens, although residents of Louisville, Kentucky, owned a large property in Lafourche Parish throughout their lives together. Their foundation, established in 1957, is one of the largest in Kentucky. The Gheens Foundation was the largest single grantor to Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC in 2011, helping ensure the availability of state-of-the-art cancer care for residents of the Bayou Region.
Sixty-eight percent of employees across all Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center locations generously pledged and donated more than $37,000 to the 2011 Partners of Hope Campaign. Money raised supports the Center’s mission and helps remove barriers such as lack of transportation and nutritional supplements needed for patients to receive care. Additionally, the Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation generously matched the first $15,000 donated, raising the total pledged to more than $52,000.

ary Bird Perkins Cancer Center has benefited from the deep generosity of many supporters throughout the year. Many individuals, groups, schools and businesses have hosted a variety of events to support the Center’s mission. These fundraising events are managed independently by volunteers in collaboration with Cancer Center staff. Others have helped through cause marketing – partnering with Mary Bird Perkins to raise funds through a product, service or business. The funds raised through all of these efforts are making a difference in the fight against cancer. Mary Bird Perkins is truly grateful to everyone who values its mission and chooses to support it.

CANCER CENTER FOUNDATION As Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2011, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center Foundation also celebrated a remarkable milestone. The Foundation’s endowment surpassed the $5 million threshold, thanks to an extremely successful year of contributions. With leadership and support from Mr. Thomas J. “T.J.” Moran, Heart of a Hero, Mary Bird's new grateful giving program was launched. Thanks to 73 generous donors, nearly $1.2 million in gifts and pledges were received in recognition of their heroes. As a result, 23 new Anna B. Lipsey Legacy Builders were added. All of these generous gifts will help further build a permanent endowment dedicated to helping fight cancer in the communities served by Mary Bird Perkins. In 2011, we honored the amazing past of Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center. It will be the responsibility of the MBPCCF to help secure its bright future.

2011 Community Report
Saving lives and extending life is possible at Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center. This is the sentiment expressed by the grateful patient who inspired Heart of a Hero, Mr. T.J. Moran, a 22-year throat and lung cancer survivor who was treated at MBPCC. Mr. Moran’s immense gratitude and respect for the members of his treatment team led him to make an extraordinary donation of $1 million to the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center Foundation, announced at the Center’s 40th Anniversary Gala in April 2011. This overwhelming act of generosity brought to life Heart of a Hero, a grateful giving and recognition program to support the fight against cancer. Heart of a Hero is available to anyone, for any amount, to honor or memorialize individuals who have touched their lives and support Mary Bird Perkins’ life-saving work. Share your hero with us at marybird.org/hero. Mr. Moran’s story has inspired so many already. The inaugural donors to this program include: T.J. Moran, cancer survivor
