Inspiring Philanthropy. Changing Lives.
Mercy Foundation shares thanks to all fiscal year 2011-12 donors | 6
President’s message As we leave the summer heat behind and head into the Thanksgiving season, we celebrate community members, employees, businesses and foundations who, through shared common values and gifts, change and save lives in our community. In this issue, we acknowledge and thank donors who have made gifts or commitments of $100 or more in fiscal year 2012, as well as those who have demonstrated longstanding commitment through membership in our McAuley and Legacy Societies. Thank you for all that you do for the ministries we serve.
Registered nurses Rachel McConachie (left) and Ann Chrisler (right) share memories with Manda Ness about her brother, Kevin, who passed away in 2011 from lung cancer. The guidance and compassion Rachel and Ann provided to Kevin and Manda during his cancer journey inspired Manda to create a charitable fund in Kevin's memory.
Nurse navigators inspire gift to help lung cancer patients and their families They were four shocking words no one ever wishes to hear: You have lung cancer. Kevin Ness and his sister, Manda, thought he was just fighting a particularly nasty cold. But after rounds of scans and appointments with specialists, Kevin’s cancer diagnosis was definitive, he had surgery to remove some tumors, and he and Manda were left reeling with how quickly their lives had changed. They also felt overwhelmed, unsure of what steps to take next. But Kevin’s cancer journey became easier soon after surgery when he met Rachel
McConachie, a cheerful and energetic oncology nurse navigator at Mercy San Juan Medical Center. Patient navigation is a burgeoning service at U.S. hospitals and is an important step in removing barriers to care and promoting best outcomes. Because cancer care is highly complex, some patients, particularly the socioeconomically disadvantaged, find the process too difficult to manage. Some, for example, anticipate the financial burden to be too much to bear and don’t receive screenings or other Continued on page 2
Looking ahead, we are focusing on five initiatives: Mercy Cancer Institute, Mercy Neurological Institute, Mercy Heart & Vascular Institute, Cristo Rey High School, and a Mercy Center Auburn hermitage. While these will be our focus in the months ahead, the Foundation welcomes gifts to all Sisters of Mercy ministries, including those listed on the enclosed envelope. If you are interested in learning more about the ministries, or any of our giving opportunities, please feel free to contact me directly at (916) 851-2703. Thank you again for your ongoing support.

life-saving assessments. Others don’t follow through with treatment simply because they can’t find transportation to appointments.
Through navigation, patients are led step by step through the entire cancer journey, from screening through survivorship. Because the service has proved to be a critical component to access and care, in 2011 the Commission on Cancer, part of the American College of Surgeons, outlined standards requiring cancer centers to offer patient navigation by 2015 as a condition for accreditation. The National Cancer Institute reports that navigation has increased survival rates among African American breast cancer patients in Harlem, N.Y., and has educated the greater community about cancer prevention and treatment. “Cancer treatment is complex—patients have a lot more options than ever before, and it’s hard to make decisions. It can be confusing,” Rachel said. “Most people need an advocate to help them understand everything that they are facing. Many just want someone to answer questions like, ‘Why is this happening to me? Why am I getting this symptom?’” Other times, patients simply want and need someone to talk to. “Sometimes we’re an ear for them. We listen to their fears, their hopes,” said Ann Chrisler, who also is an oncology nurse navigator at Mercy San Juan Medical Center and worked with Kevin when Rachel was committed elsewhere. Rachel guided Kevin through a maze of appointments, treatments, hospitalizations, counseling and more. When he was taken to the emergency room, she helped expedite his admission to a hospital patient room. And when Kevin was running late for a critical appointment due to illness, Rachel called the office to ensure his time would be held. 2
How you can help A cancer diagnosis is overwhelming for patients and families. Your philanthropic partnership with Mercy Foundation can make their journey easier. Mercy Foundation welcomes contributions of all sizes to its Nurse Navigator Fund. One hundred percent of gifts directly support patients with all types of cancers. The Foundation also welcomes gifts to the Kevin Ness Memorial Fund (Kevin is pictured above, with sister Manda, at the 2001 Ness family reunion). Your contribution will provide direct support to lung cancer patients and their families. Donations can be made online or through the envelope provided in this newsletter. Please indicate “Nurse Navigator Fund” and/or “Kevin Ness Memorial Fund” with your gift. To learn about more ways to give, and about other philanthropic initiatives, visit SupportMercyFoundation.org or call (916) 851-2700. Thank you for inspiring philanthropy and changing lives through your generosity!
Both Rachel and Ann have vibrant personalities and a sense of fun— unique character traits, along with their deep compassion, that immediately put patients at ease and help make the cancer journey manageable. “Rachel and Ann were always there for Kevin,” said Manda. “He was so happy when he found them. Rachel would show up when Kevin was having chemo. She gave us both moral support.” In September 2011, less than a year after his diagnosis, Kevin succumbed to cancer with Manda and their brother, Michael, by his side. Devastated,
Manda returned to their home state of Minnesota to celebrate Kevin’s life with their many cousins. She had been thinking for some time about ways to honor his memory when, at his memorial, the Ness cousins let Manda know that she could have an extra $3,000 that the family had pooled together for a family reunion planned a decade ago. With those funds, Manda created the Kevin Ness Memorial Fund through Mercy Foundation to help make lung cancer manageable for patients and their families—just as Rachel and Ann had done for her brother.
“While Kevin was struggling with his illness, he vowed to help people with lung cancer once he recovered. Creating the fund is a way to honor his wishes and also recognize the nurse navigators for all they do,” Manda said. “Kevin loved Rachel—she helped make his cancer journey bearable. And Ann. They were both angels.” To date, Kevin’s memorial fund has helped with such needs as transportation, child care and respite care for several patients and their families. “The Kevin Ness Memorial Fund really makes a difference locally,” Rachel said. “Our patients really see it.” Transportation is the biggest issue Rachel and Ann see with their patients. “Many people simply can’t drive, and others can’t afford gas or a taxi,” Ann said. “And with multiple appointments, it adds up quickly and is especially hard on people with limited income.” The fund has purchased gas cards and public transportation passes, and paid for taxis to appointments. “We’ve also seen families endure the hardship of having to care for a very sick loved one while also managing a household with children and working full-time to keep their health insurance,” Ann added. Kevin’s fund has helped pay for a caregiver for families needing extra support. Together, Mercy nurse navigators, and donors like Manda, are breaking down barriers to care and improving lives affected by cancer. Manda hopes the Kevin Ness Memorial Fund will grow so that more lung cancer patients can benefit from the compassion and support of nurse navigators. “Kevin was so happy when he found Rachel and Ann. They were always there for him,” Manda said. “When they were in the room, he felt so much better. He felt comforted. He wasn’t alone.”
What is a nurse navigator? Cancer is a medical and emotional journey for both patients and their families. While each passage is unique, all patients experience common turns and stops from diagnosis through the end of treatment. The road can be tough to maneuver, so it helps to have a guide to light the way. Mercy nurse navigators like Ann Chrisler (left) and Rachel McConachie (right) create hope, courage and strength for cancer patients by guiding them and their families through their journey in a compassionate, healing environment. They provide both practical and emotional support, including: •
Educating patients and families about their specific cancer diagnoses and treatment options and answering questions
Coordinating care among physicians and allied health-care professionals, assisting with and often expediting referrals, and scheduling appointments
Explaining the treatment process in layman’s terms, making sure patients understand what’s in store
Referring patients and families to community support services and other resources to enhance care
Offering such tips and tricks as where to purchase prostheses and wigs, and how to manage adverse effects of treatments
Facilitating support groups for patients and families
Educating the community about cancer prevention and screenings
The Sisters of Mercy

Sister Cora Salazar: Called by God to Mercy Growing up in the Philippines, Sister Cora Salazar witnessed her father’s charity and compassion for those in need. “We were very poor—I came from a family of eight children—but my father was very giving to others,” she said. “I remember my mother telling him, ‘We have no money, you have eight mouths to feed, and you give away our last bag of rice!’ But his belief, and mine, was that God will always provide. And he does.” Inspired by her father’s legacy of caring and by the proverb, “Give families fish, they will eat for a day; teach them to fish, they will eat for a lifetime,” Sr. Cora founded Families In Self Help (F.I.S.H.) in 1998 to provide social support, language education and vocational training to motivated, low-income refugee-immigrant families with the goal of moving them from public assistance to self-reliance. The first families to seek services at F.I.S.H. were refugees from Southeast Asia. Sr. Cora taught them English and helped them acclimate to American culture. “They were very afraid,” she said. “It was complete culture shock for them, and for a while they had a difficult time.” At times she went to their homes to encourage them to go to school. To help the refugees continue their agricultural traditions, Sr. Cora found acreage for them to create and maintain a garden, which now yields fruits and vegetables for F.I.S.H. families. Sr. Cora has spent a lifetime in service to those in need. In the 1970s, before she joined the Sisters of Mercy, she served two years in Micronesia as a Peace Corps volunteer. Because she held a degree and background in business administration, her role was to teach Micronesian women how to be secretaries. Sr. Cora’s Peace Corps work was so successful that the governor of Micronesia wanted to hire her as an administrator in his office, and even offered her a large 4
home. But she knew that her calling was in service and teaching. When her volunteer term was up, she moved to San Francisco to earn a master’s degree in secondary education. While in graduate school, Sr. Cora felt a deep call by God to visit the Holy Land. As a student, however, she had extremely limited disposable income, and had no idea how the trip could be possible. Soon after the call, as she was kneeling in church in prayer, she looked up at the pew and spied a small brochure advertising an affordable trip to the Holy Land. The tour group had one cancellation, and after much prayer and work, “God gave me the exact money for the trip,” she recalled. “You think you’re running away from God, but he’s actually pursuing you.” Her eight-day Holy Land visit, during Christmas, was transformative. “At every Homily, I heard the same thing: ‘If you really love me, take up your cross and follow me,’” she remembered. During that visit, a priest suggested she join the Sisters of Mercy. Three months later, she began her life with them in Auburn, Calif. After earning her master’s degree at San Francisco State University and professing her final vows with the Sisters of Mercy, Sr. Cora—who at that time found herself extremely busy in her role as a teacher at a Catholic school—felt a deep need and new call for a quiet life. “I thought I was being called to be a contemplative,” she said. She went to Sonoita, Arizona for 40 days to pray and to discover God’s plans for her, which were not what she expected: “I spent more than a month in the desert only to be told by God, ‘It’s not sacrifice I want from you, it’s Mercy,” she remembered. Her path, she felt, was clear. After Sr. Cora returned to Sacramento, she taught at several Sacramento-area schools for many years before she
founded F.I.S.H. in West Sacramento. She plans to step down from her executive director role in 2013, and will take time to reflect on how God is calling her. "I am confident of his boundless and unconditional love, which is expressed through people in the community, co-workers in ministry, collaborators in the Mercy mission, and, most of all, the faithful volunteers," she said. "I experience mercy through them.”

Family, employees honor late Dignity Health colleague with cancer center gift Family and friends remembered longtime Dignity Health employee Mari Zieour at a special celebration held September 27 at the Mercy Cancer Center. Mari passed away from cancer in December 2011.
Wells Fargo gift supports new heart valve clinic at Mercy General Hospital Wells Fargo has given $50,000 to Mercy Foundation to help Mercy General Hospital increase physician awareness of the transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedure available at its new TAVR clinic. The gift supports outreach to Northern California physicians to educate them on the new procedure and determine which patients are candidates. The FDA-approved TAVR procedure is appropriate for patients who have severe aortic stenosis—a narrowing of the heart valve that restricts blood flow to the heart—and who are considered inoperable for open valve replacement because of age or poor health. TAVR can improve quality of life and extend life expectancy for these patients. During the procedure, a replacement valve is crimped onto a catheter over a balloon. The catheter is inserted through the femoral artery in the groin and tracked to the heart for implantation. When the new valve is positioned inside the faulty aortic valve, the balloon is inflated and the valve is precisely positioned. Patient recovery time is typically less than traditional heart surgery.
Wells Fargo was impressed by the positive outcomes that TAVR offers for patients who otherwise have no treatment options. “As a financial services leader in California that cares about our community’s well-being, Wells Fargo was pleased to partner with Mercy General Hospital on this new life-saving initiative,” said Kevin Barri, president of the Community Foothills Market. “We are pleased to invest in one of the nation’s most successful heart programs and in this new clinic that will save lives throughout Northern California.” The TAVR gift is the latest investment in Mercy’s cardiac program by Wells Fargo. The company previously gave $50,000 to jump start funding for an innovative robotic catheter system for patients with atrial fibrillation. “Wells Fargo has long supported Mercy’s work, and we are grateful for their ongoing investment through Mercy Foundation,” said Foundation President and CEO Kevin Duggan. “Their gift is a commitment to the well-being of our community, in alignment with the Sisters of Mercy mission to enhance and save lives of those in need.”
Mari’s family donated $10,000 to Mercy Foundation in her memory, and more than 40 Dignity Health employees contributed more than $20,000 through the Employees Lend a Hand program. To celebrate Mari's life, a water feature in the cancer center’s Healing Garden was named in her honor. The garden is a peaceful space viewable by patients receiving chemotherapy in the infusion room. During the celebration at the water feature, Mari’s husband, David, and her family added water that had been collected from Mari’s favorite places throughout Northern California. Sister Bridget McCarthy, vice president of mission integration for the Dignity Health Sacramento/San Joaquin Service Area, offered a blessing on the water feature and shared prayers of remembrance for Mari. Mari was well loved by her colleagues. "Mari was an amazing woman. She was never too busy for you," said friend and Dignity Health employee Gaylene Andersen, who spearheaded the employee giving effort. "One colleague who gave to Employees Lend a Hand in her memory didn’t know Mari personally, but decided to donate because every day when Mari walked by she acknowledged her with a big smile. That was our Mari— she touched everyone."
